When the program opens none of my photos appear.  Please Help!

Windows XP, running Picasa 3.5

another user has a similar complaint here:

For what its worth, I'm sure the photos are fine... It's just Picasa that's having a bad day...
My GUESS is that the Picasa Database is messed up somehow

Don thank you for your reply.  If I reinstall Picasa, do you think that all my face recognition tags will be lost?  Thanks!

Hi Carrie,

We suspect this issue has to do with Picasa not reading your database correctly due to Picasa not being able to access certain necessary files. Are you an administrator on your computer? We had another report of this from a user who said she was able to run Picasa fine as an administrator and got the "cblock" error when she was not running it as an administrator.

You can rebuild your database but unfortunately, there is no gaurantee that rebuilding will fix the issue. Your face tags should still cluster together correclty but you may need to rename them. Our development team is looking into this issue. We are hoping to have this resolved soon. In the mean time, we are adding this issue to our Known Issues Page. We will update the page once this issue is fixed.

Jaysiej  - I appreciate the help.  Just so you know, I am getting the same error when I run the program as an administrator.  I will keep track of the known issues page and look out for a solution.

Thanks - Carrie

I found that I had to uninstall Picasa and my personal settings to eliminate the problem with the CBlockFile.  I uninstalled all Picasa files, then reinstalled Picasa 3.6 and it is working again.

I too am having the same problem. My machine crashed while Picasa was running the face recognition tool. I have tried uninstalling Picasa without removing the database and re-installing but still no luck. I probably have to now try uninstalling the database - I am not sure what I will miss, but dont seem to have any choice :-(

I've uninstalled the database when I uninstalled the program, and I am still getting the CBLOCK error.  No luck :(   however, the software is running just fine....just giving me the error messages (2) when I start it up.

My computer (Windows 7 Ultimate) was running and had entered a sleep state with Picasa 3.6 running.  Computer would not properly resume from sleep (unknown reason).  I had to hard power-off.  When I restarted and tried to start Picasa, I am now getting the CblockFile::Restore err=2, albums_index.db error.  It then says that my Face data needs to be updated, but pressing Okay does not fix it.  Will try the uninstall and reinstall now...  Have a tremendous amount of faces recognized, so here's hoping!

I just deleted the \users\my_name\AppData\Local\Google\Picasa2 and Picasa2Albums. This folder seems to contain the corrupted database.

Had to reinitialize my picture folders.
