I found what for me is a major problem with the Backup and Restore function in TMG 8.08 (and probably all versions of the software).
The other day I encountered an error when trying to load my data - there was a missing file(s) - and there was no way to recover from it except to restore from the last backup file.
The problem is all of my exhibits are stored in a directory structure depending on what the data is. I have subfolders under the exhibits folder for census records, birth certificates, marriage information, death certificates, military records, pictures of tombstones, etc. Under the census subfolder I have even more subfolders for all the different years of the censuses, and then more subfolders under those years for the states, counties and towns/cities/townships. However in the process of restoring my data, the program now thinks that all of the exhibits are just under the exhibits folder, and ignores all of the subfolders. All the imagines are still in the directory structure I created, but all the the events in TMG are now just looking at the ..\exhibits folder and not the subfolders for that exhibit data.
I didn't go to all the effort to create this exhibit hierarchy just for the restore process to destroy it.
Other than running TMG Utility's Missing External Exhibit function and then manually edit all 2,400+ events with exhibits, is there anyway to get TMG to recognize my directory structure?
If there isn't, Wholly Genes really needs to fix this issue.
