Is it possible to recover faces tagged in the old .fotobounce sub-directories?

if you have a .fotobounce folder that you have from another system or from a backup you can place that in the current photos folder and it should be updated to the newer "Fotobounce Data" folder. this will convert your old face data to the newer format introduced in Version 3.5.

if you already have a Fotobounce Data folder in the library you are referring to then that won't work. another strategy would be to copy all the photos to a temp location (close Fotobounce first), delete the Fotobounce Data folder in the temp location, place the old .fotobounce folder in the temp folder, start Fotobounce up, change your library in Fotobounce to the temp folder, that should restore your old tagging.

then change libraries back to the current library, and there is menu option under the File menu called Merge People from another library. You could use that, select the temp library, and those people and faces should show up in your current library.
