I installed my TMG v7 on my new Windows 7 laptop and now cannot backup v7. The

program tries to find "Documents" folder but Windows 7 uses "My Documents" and I

keep getting an error that it can't find the place to save and I can't change the

destination. I didn't install the program, I reinstalled everything on my computer from

my external had drive after my old computer crashed. How can I fix this problem?

Linda,

 

With the project open, go to Preferences (File Menu) and in the Current Project Options > Advanced section, change the Backups path to a valid path. Do that clicking on the [ ... ] button to the right of the path and navigating to the place you want the backups to be located. While you are there, change the other paths to valid locations too.

I tried this and the path is correct, but I still get the error message when I try to back up:

Memo File c:UsersLindaDocumentsThe Master Genealogist v7ProjectsCARLSON FAMILY_I.FTP is missing or is invalid.

Linda,

 

That sounds like an entirely different issue than what you described above. Hopefully one of our members more familiar with such issues can help.
