Roger, I don't use Dropbox. I moved the files from my pc to the tablet the old fashioned way...a 12" cable and copy & paste.
I apologize if my post was out of place in this subject heading. I was really responding to your post in ".rmgc file(s) location"

Thanks 'Roger-Ohio' for your input.

However, at least for me, having the RM6 data file in a folder named 'RootsMagic' still does no permit the Android App to locate the file since it does find folders or file when they are on a SD memory Card and not in the device primary memory.

When I select "Files > On Device" from the program bar nothing appears. I really want a function option to deliver into all my files on my tablet and let me select which I wish open.

Going from the other direction and selecting the .rmgc data file on the SD Card and attempting to open it results in an "unable to find program to perform this function' error.

(Hoping the tech staff at RootsMagic would chime in on all these issues and say "We recognize the need and are working to issue a 1.02+ update quickly")

Don, I talked about the procedure in "Dropbox Only? Surely not" discussion o 2/02014:
" It is a simple process to move files from a pc to a tablet using a cable to interconnect the devices (have already done that with my RM files). The question is how utilize the Roots Magic App 'File' selection to find the files if they are now stored on an SD card and not in the tablet device memory".

Moving the files was easy, But I haven't been able to discover how to have the RM App find them yet.

There where two objectives in my using a hard cable approach; 1) No need for internet connection (or 3rd party services) & 2) Placing the files where I wanted them on my tablet (in this case on the SD Card and not using up device memory for storage).

So I also was unable actually open up a transferred file but thought that was because I had placed it on the SD Card where the RM App was not designed to anticipate files yet. Would be pleased if some one at RM would let us know the exact file (folder) location that this App is pointed at while we wait for a process to permit the data file to be placed at a location of our choosing

The question is how utilize the Roots Magic App 'File' selection to find the files if they are now stored on an SD card and not in the tablet device memory.
I too do not believe that going through a 3 party system outside my personal control to move private files is a wise approach Especially when the two devices are 12 inches apart. Please provide a way that the RM App can find the files if they are moved from a pc to a tablet.
Thanks for making progress on the Android App.
