Purchased 2 copies of Family Roots. Daughter and I share working on the database. We use one hard drive attached to our wireless Router.

On her computer it is "Drive M", on mine "Drive Z". If she adds a photo, it shows on my computer with an "X" on it. Same for her if I add a photo.

How can we both work on the database (at different times) and both see the same data without the x's ??

Will it work if we change the drive letter of one to match the other ?

Yes, if you can map the drive to the same letter on each computer, then additions made on one will have the same path on the other. Otherwise, you can use the Search and Replace > Multimedia filenames to search for "M:" and replace with "Z:" (and vice-versa on hers) as a quick fix (backup first!).

Thanks. I'll give it a try.
