I have a new PC and am trying to get RootsMagic 7 set up on it. My old hard drive was going bad and crashing repeatedly. I mention that because I tried the recommended method of saving my tree with the media attached but I can't do that as the RootsMagic program on the old computer is giving me various error messages.
I have RootsMagic 7 installed on my new PC and I have my tree which I copied from backup files. Of course my media links are broken and I have been trying to fix that using the tool under Media to fix the broken links. However I am having problems with RootsMagic finding the right path. One path on my old PC was C:\Users\user\Documents\Documents\Ancestry Ehlman-Feltel_media\4192489_00342.jpg. I didn't realize until I started to try and fix the link problems that using Treeshare with Ancestry uses a whole different folder than some of my other media. Anyway I have the Ancestry media file on my new computer but RootsMagic can't find it. I want to start with this folder and see if I can fix the links and then try and move onto the other folders. I also know I have issues with some folders being in Dropbox and others in One Drive.
I have read thru various posts on this topic and I know people have lots of different methods for their media folders and subfolders, that I mostly don't understand. I also know my user name is different on my new computer. I eventually just want to have maybe 2 or 3 folders: one pictures, one documents and maybe one Ancestry. Right now I just need to know where to start.
