With v8.08 I backup my project and get an error about a missing exhibit, and the last backup log indicates this (running on a Mac under Parallels; all TMG files are on the Parallels C drive):

 

*********************
*  Missed Exhibits  *
*********************
text >\\psf\Home\Downloads\EMAIL-WILMOT-Richard (Rick) and family.txt
********************************************
* Not found one exhibit file.
********************************************
 
How can I figure out what the issue is and the resolution?
I do have one exhibit with a name similar to the text file name above: it is a PDF exhibit with this file: "EMAIL-WILMOT-Richard (Rick) and family.pdf" - it is an external exhibit and exists with my other exhibits in "C:\Users\<username>\GENEALOGY DB\Exhibits" (including some other PDF exhibits).
(So I don't think it is related to the fact that I have a PDF file, am I pointing to a text version somewhere?)
 
 
Thanks in advance.

For the benefit of others:

 

OK - answered my own question:

downloaded John Cardinal's TMG utility and ran an exhibit report with it (missing exhibits only) - this let me identify the source record that had the missing exhibit. 

(Just deleted it as it already also had the NOT missing PDF version!).
