In Topic: Backup Folder

20 February 2015 - 03:05 PM

Thanks Renee. That seems to be the best way to do it.

But of course it is still necessary to copy over the rmgc file to the new backup folder, which is not very intuitive.

In retrospect I guess it would have been simpler to just have one backup folder for RM5, 6, 7 then I would  not have run into this problem.

OK - thanks for that.

I copied the rmgc file from my RM6 folder to my RM7 folder.

I had tried that before with no luck but the trick is to double click the rmgc file itself to open it.

Now it remembers it should be in the RM7 folder.

(There seems to be no way to achieve that from within the program itself)

Well I don't really want to be messing with the XML file, but I can see that under <Folders> everything points to my "RootsMagic7 Backup" folder.

So why does it put the rmgc backup into my RM6 folder ?


I'm hoping someone will jump in here with a simple fix.

In Topic: Price for upgrade to RM7

To TomH - where can I see info on free upgrade from RM6 to RM7 ?


I still find it strange that the website says "you may also upgrade to latest version at the discounted price of only $19.95" when they are selling RM7 for new customers at the same price ( http://www.rootsmagi...ic/Special.aspx )

In Topic: Problem with backup folder path

Thanks, I was a bit confused about RMGB, which is a true (zipped) backup, and RMGC which is the saved database.


Just as a test I put a copy of the RMGC file on my desktop and clicked that to start RootsMagic.

Now when I close Rootsmagic and select "Skip Backup" I would expect the RMGC file to be saved to the Default Folder that I have selected for "data files" (I am assuming we call the RMGC file a data file).

Instead the RMGC file is saved back to the desktop.


If I do a proper RMGB backup it does go to the correct folder.
