What is the mark on the photos in the gallery?
A broken chain link with the "Spark" where it is broken?
If that is the case, the file has been moved or deleted and RootsMagic can no longer locate it.
(those photos you see in the media gallery are only thumbnails which are stored in the database.)
There is a feature in the Tools menu of the Media Album or Media Gallery to "Fix broken media links" which will search all available drives and relink the media files if they can be found.
If you moved the entire folder, there is also a tool in the RootsMagic Search menu to search and replace Media file names. That can be used to change the folder path from what RootsMagic has to what they actually are.

Thank you very much. Problem sorted.I did not think to check the tool bar. Lesson learned.
I have 2 data bases on my RM4. Both have different media galleries. One of them has become corrupted and the photographs have a mark on them in RM4. How can I remove this particular gallery. I find I can replace the photo but when I look in the media gallery there is a "clear" photo alongside the corrupted one. I have copied and pasted the file location without success. Would appreciate some help.
