I have been an amateur TMG user for years, but never get to spend enough time with it. Every time I upgrade, I feel like a new user. I now am using TMGv7 and my poor file management practices have caught up with me. I contacted on-line support and got WONDERFUL help via email and phone. However, I would like to improve my file management going into the future. My files are so messed up that I hardly know where to begin.
I hate to admit it, but I have multiple copies of TMG folders. I would like to delete the unnecessary folders, but I don't want to make things worse. 1. What is the BEST path to update Projects and Backups to?
I am running Windows 7.
My Backups are here: C:usersmy namedocumentsthemastergenealogistv7backups
My Projects are here: Librariesdocumentsmy folderthemastergenealogistv7projects
I think I have a problem with exhibits because they are in several different folders. 2. I believe exhibits should all be in one external folder outside of TMG?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I want to upgrade to TMG8 after I have my files in order. 3. Before the upgrade I only need to backup the .sqz file from the backups file to an external drive?
