First, congratulations to all the BETA testers out there and to RootsMagic for the finished product. First Beta testing that I have done that met its goal so quickly.
Downloaded the new RM 7.5 a few hours ago and from the information on the final BETA email announcing the new RootsMagic version, I started to download the full tree from Ancestry.com and prepared to wait the usual 12-15 hours for my 31K people, 6.82GB media file to download.
Was greatly surprised and pleased to see that the full download with all media intact took 4 hours and 2 minutes. Then a strange 4.86 MB file that I did not see either while Beta testing nor on the previous regular RM7 program showed up, timed at one minute after RootsMagic finished downloading my tree.
It carries the same name as the newly downloaded tree with a Microsoft Access Project extension. Tried to open the file as Properties states it will open with M$ Access 2013 but an error code "Access Data Projects are no longer supported in this version of Access" comes up.
Was able to open the file with Notepad++. Seems to have something to do with SQLite format 3.
Topics that I can see in
MatchTable CREATE INDEX
RecID INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, DupID INTEGER, rmID INTEGER, anID TEXT, Score FLOAT, Percent INTEGER, Name TEXT
(RecID INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, ID1 INTEGER, ID2 TEXT, Linked INTEGER, Name TEXT COLLATE RMNOCASE, Modified INTEGER

CREATE TABLE DupTable (RecID INTEGER PRIMARY KEY, ID1 INTEGER, ID2 TEXT, Linked INTEGER, Name TEXT COLLATE RMNOCASE, Modified INTEGER
begins to list people in the tree
unsure how the order of people is decided and it only appears to be full name - Ref ID.
And a notice just popped up saying that the ADP file is gone - confirmed it is gone, though it is still holding on Notepad++ editor. Full tree now has a modified time approx one hour later that it originally said.
- Is this a legit part of the finalized RootsMagic product?
- Does the ADP file [since it has now disappeared] mean that the file was still completing the download or sorting of the tree?
- If it happens again can I work on the tree immediately after TreeShare or will any work done on RootsMagic be lost?
- Is it something to be concerned about?
- Is this related to the large size of the downloaded tree? rmgc = 65.08MB; Media folder = 6.82GB, 10713 files.
Thanks for any help
