I just discovered that I have all my media in 2 different locations.

 

I want to put in one location, then globally point all media to that file folder.

 

What is the easiest way to do that?

 

i.e. - Media is at

c:\genealogy\scan

c:\genealogy\scan2

 

and I want to combine everything into a new directory

c:\genealogy\scan3

 

I've tried putting all images together and fix the broken media links - but it's not working.

Fix broken media links should have found them if they were not renamed.

 

You can also use Search>Search and Replace>Multimedia filenames to change the pathnames

 

Search for: c:\genealogy\scan\

Replace with: c:\genealogy\scan3\

Thank you.  I create a new folder, dropped everything into it, pointed my media to the new folder and ran the search and replace.  Everything looks fine now.
