I have just installed the Android appon my Motorola Moto G 4G LTE.

I  assume that while your info shows that the app is written for RootsMagic V3 to 6, in fact it now also supports V7..


I see that you recommend file transfers using Dropbox.  However I  usually transfer files between W10 and my phone by plugging in a USB cable, changing the permission from charging to file transfer, and drag-and-drop files across.

But I see I have to create a destination folder to do this.  Windows Explorer opens the directory MotoG3 > SanDisk SD card and  a large number of subdirectories such as Android  (with subfolders), also Document  and Download and etc., and of course DCIM > photos where I can retrieve the photos of taken, and Pictures where I can transfer photos from my computer.


So I am wondering what directory tree I should  create, and place the RMGC file in?

Any assistance appreciated

It has to be in a Dropbox folder, something like Dropbox/Apps/RootsMagic.
