Thanks to TomH, Renee, alanmon and you, Vyger.


So File History in Win 10 is the Verdammt Culprit.


I'm quite familiar with File History and use it frequently -- and it puts beards on my RM7 Image Files.




I'll deal with it...


Cutting Off The Beards.

Something else is renaming your media files on the computer. RootsMagic won't change the filenames it only links to them. Like This


Windows 10?

Very True...


The Threads Often Just Trail Off To Oblivion...As Did This One...




One plausible "solution" I've discovered is laborious -- but works.


For some verdampt, unfathomed reason, it seems that RM7 likes to change the names of my media files.


Let's say I name an image file, a portrait of Abraham Lincoln,  AbeLincoln2 and it's designated as a .jpg file.


RM7 then wants to rename the image file as AbeLincoln2(2018_08_17 05_06_27 UTC).jpg.  Why, I do not know.


Now, if I trim the "beard" off the AbeLincoln2 file -- all that (2018_08_17 05_06_27 UTC).jpg. rubbish -- Media Gallery can find it and the image displays correctly without the verdampt and feared Red X.


So, if I trim the beards on all 4,567 image files I had in RM7 will they just be added again?


And, equally important, is there a quicker way?

Thanks, Jerry.  That is a remarkably candid, thoughtful and informative post.  I'm going to think about your points for a while -- let them marinate -- and then reply further.

I haven't proposed an algorithm to calculate CLOSENESS.
