There are situations where a volume has been improperly ejected. When the volume is mounted again, the mount point of the previous time is still hanging around, and macOS cannot reuse it. As a result it will allocate a new mount point that has a slightly different name.
Since Peakto uses the path to access a catalog, changing the mount point will make the original path unavailable and the path will appear offline.
Let's take an example. Suppose our external drive is called "Media" and is improperly ejected.
When plugging it back, the original mount point '/Volumes/Media' is still there and empty. MacOS will allocate a new mount point '/Volumes/Media 1' and all the content of our "Media" drive will now have their path prefixed by '/Volumes/Media 1'.
Peakto will recognise that the path "/Volumes/Media" is still present and will mark the volume as online.
But any catalog with a path such as "/Volumes/Media/Catalog.photos" will not be accessible at that path, but rather at "/Volumes/Media 1/Catalog.photos".
The best way to get rid of this dangling mount point is to restart your Mac.
How to send the Peakto database when the support asks for it

How to send a log file when our supports requests it?
From our Support team: Sometimes, we need to understand what went wrong in a conversion process (Avalanche) or an ingestion process (Peakto), and we will ask you to send us a log file. This file contains information printed out by Avalanche/peakto ...
How to send your machine ID when the support asks for it
Sometimes, we need to be able to find you in our trial database while you are still testing Peakto, e.g when trying to extend the trial period. Because we do not ask for an email when starting a trial, the only identification we have is the ID of ...

How to send the Aperture database if the support asks for it ?
Aperture libraries can be very big and sometimes contain images. In some situations, it would be useful for our support team to be able to simulate Avalanche running on your own data. Luckily, you don't have to send any image to let us do that. We ...
