Changing links to photos

12 March 2018 - 11:59 AM

I am helping a neighbor convert from PAF/Ancestral Quest to Roots Magic. She inherited the PAF/AQ databases, so she is unfamiliar with how each was set up. She also inherited 2700+ photos and sound files in her multimedia collection. Each individual seems to have links to slightly different folders, all in a basic single folder. I see for each person that there is an image of each photo, with a red 'X', and I can fix each person's links to a new common folder. But she has over 11,000 persons. I'd rather not tell that she has to fix each one separately.


I have set the Tools --> Program Options --> Multimedia folder to the desired single folder, but the individual links still point to the multiple different folders.


Is there a way to change them all to the same single folder?
