I'm use RootsMagic 6 and am trying to fix broken media links.

 

I can select Tools > Fix broken media links and select my C:\ drive drive, but the "Search this and all sub-folders" dialog box is grayed out and can't be selected so that I can choose a starting point for the search.  Instead, I have to search my entire C:\ drive to fix the links.

 

I did set a default media folder but I don't have the option so search beginning in that folder unless I search for broken links on my A:\ drive, which doesn't exist on my computer.  Even when I do try to search the A:\ drive, I can only search the root folder containing my media and none of its subfolders.

 

Any suggestions on how to set the specific start folder/subfolders for searching on my C:\ drive are appreciated.

 

Thanks.

In the dropdown list in which you can select a drive, select instead "<A folder>". That enables you to browse to any drive and folder and select it.

Thank you.  I did that, but it doesn't give me the option to search all the subfolders.  It appears to be only searching the main folder.

It does search all sub folders.
