How do I figure out if galleries were collected or duplicated?

I'm trying to figure out what happened in the aftermath of my migration. I had thought I would have all my albums migrated to galleries at the top level, but my subsites.

I found all my subsites created as folders; however, I found only a few albums at the top level.

I'm guessing that all the albums are under subsites. I haven't had time to figure out if everything made it to the correct location. I noticed that some of the galleries I ended up at the top level of my site are galleries that I'd never published on Phanfare; however, some of them had been published and I can see them in multiple locations.

I reviewed the article about collections. It looks to me like I should see a remove menu item when clicking on the wrench menu, but I do not. I see the "Collect" option. Does that mean all my photos are duplicated instead of collected?

And if photos are collected, how do I figure out where the migration put the original photo vs. where the collected photo is?

    In the Organizer there's a little arrow icon that indicates it's a collected photo:

    For understanding where the original gallery is, underneath the photo or in the Lightbox it will also say "From ..."

    If one removes a folder containing collected photos does the "original" or duplicate copy remain? What about in the other direction: if one removes the photo or folder from whence the collected photo apparently came does that leave the collected photo behind? Thanks.

    If you remove a collected photo the original remains.
    If you remove the original photo the original and all places where it was collected are removed.

    And DONT do what I did and accidently delete all your originals thinking they were "spares"!! Only delete the ones with the arrows on them.
