Can't find missing exhibits

Recommended Posts

When I run VFI it reports "2 exhibits not found."  It seems in the past when I had this problem, I could find the persons associated with the missing exhibits by running John Cardinal's TMG Utility.   But TMGU now reports no missing exhibits.  I also thought I recalled that TMG itself kept a log of these things, but I can't find it.  The Last Backup Log only tells me the numbers of the missing exhibits, not which person's they were attached to:

image >292      - C:\Users\cjden\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Exhibits\Sarah Smith 1850 Census.jpg

So, how to I find where these exhibits are actually missing in the my database?

Thanks for any help or suggestions you can give me.

Thanks, Jim, that was log I was looking for.  I had forgotten where it was located.  However, in this case it still doesn't give me the information that I need.  It simply says:

"23-11-2019, 17:05:25 !>C:\Users\cjden\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Exhibits\Sarah Smith 1850 Census.jpg  not found.
23-11-2019, 17:05:25 !>C:\Users\cjden\Documents\The Master Genealogist v9\Exhibits\Sarah Smith 1850 Census.jpg  not found."

This only tells me name of the missing file, which I already knew, not who or what file was formerly attached to. I've checked all the obvious places, like Sarah and her husband, their births and deaths, and children, etc., and I can't find exactly where the incorrect reference to this non-existent file is located.  I remember in the past when I had this problem, it was relatively easy to pin down but not this time.  I also know when this problem started.  I renamed "Sarah Smith 1850 Census" to "1850 U.S. Census Sarah Smith" in order to be consistent with my naming of other census files.  I then re-referenced the logical people and events to refer to this renamed file and deleted the references to the old file name.  I obviously missed two that need to be deleted, but where oh where are they? ;-)

Any further ideas?

Carl, I would just find the 1850 census online and download/attach them again. That's probably a quicker solution.

To what are the exhibits linked? Citations?

Use the appropriate list report to make a list of the items that the exhibits are linked to. Then open each and check the exhibit.
