Media import (from Legacy)

Recommended Posts

Glenn Coco

I don't know what I'm doing wrong. I am using Legacy. I have the path set in TNG settings as C:\Users\chris\OneDrive\Documents\Legacy Family Tree\Media\photos but its now showing up in TNG when I import the GEDCOM file. Am I doing something wrong?

I do not think OneDrive is a local drive.  If I am not mistaken, that is Microsoft's version of DropBox or GoogleDrive which are networked devices, so TNG might not be able to handle that type of path.  Just a guess on my part since I do not use OneDrive

Is this the exact same string as appears in the GEDCOM file?

I opened the GEDCOM in Wordpad and found this: 2 FILE C:\Users\chris\OneDrive\Documents\Legacy Family Tree\Media\photos\8681937182958930882.jpg

Does what you entered for the local path end in a \ ?

What setting do you have for "if no local path match..."
