In Topic: Roots Magic to Go conflict between files

Because Renee recommends stepping outside 2go. Use Windows File Explorer to copy your stick database file to a folder other than your base database's folder (better still, rename it when you copy it), open your main database with RM and use File Compare on the ex-stick db to find and resolve differences.

3 -- And it's been a very long time since I ran a full GEDCOM or drag-n-drop on my database.

I encourage you to do a full GEDCOM regularly - monthly, even weekly. It exercises the database in ways that the Database Tools do not and can reveal that there may be a show-stopping problem in the data, even though there is nothing amiss with the integrity of the database structure. An example is an infinite loop where a descendant is his own ancestor. We have seen reported such issues despite users faithfully using the Database Tools - they are entrapped by the problem arising in some report or focus person.
