Windows may have assigned a different drive letter to the pen drive in the other laptop(s). If you press Windows-key-X you can select "disk management" which will allow you to reset drive letters.The settings are usually persistent, but there are a variety of things which can make them change.

Is there an SQL query that will add an empty birth event to any person who doesn't have one? That might be a handy addition to the RM tools.

In Topic: One wish wishlist

I hope the web isn't "the future," or at least not the entire future. We've already seen the conniptions that developers and users have suffered whilst trying to shoehorn their formats and data into Ancestry and Family Search. It would be far better IMO to have one's own flexible software so that formats and reports are obedient to one's own needs, wishes & designs.


Web data also presents issues of privacy, security and permanence which are not under users' control. Not for me, thank you.
