I have a new install of Orchard 1.8 and need to sync all images in the /media/default/ directory to the Media Library catalog of items (‘Media’ link in Dashboard). Currently the Media Library lists only the FOLDERS but not the items (images, docs, etc.) within them – only when the import is done online does it include the image and offer a preview.

I saw a similar post being asked for version 1.7 and Bertrand’s answer was ‘Enable the Update feature and migrate your media to the media library from there’ – yet I have no clue on how to accomplish this.

Can anyone list the steps needed to do a one-time sync of all items into the Media Library ?

I received an answer from sfmskywalker.

There is an Upgrade feature that must be enabled - then choose the Media(1.7) tab and migrate all media items.

I had mind-block with the upgrade feature since I thought it must be for upgrading from previous versions and never got to try the steps mentioned.
