New computer...Thousands of images..PhotoOrganizer! Great idea? Wrong.


PhotoOrganizer sucked up all images on my harddrive and sorted them by YEAR - MONTH - DATE - LOCATION.


Removed all media from my nice organized RootsMagic folders that I made for each family (4). Nothing left but red x's. Has taken a week to relocate and still some hidden somewhere.

As long as PhotoOrganizer did not rename your photo files, then the RootsMagic Tool in the Media Gallery called "Fix broken media links" can be set to search the root folder under which the organizer placed them. It can search through all the subfolders to find the matching file names and update the paths. Of course, this response is a little late for your game. Better to have posted this to the RootsMagic 7 > Discussion forum or to the Facebook users group where it would have been addressed within hours, if not minutes.
