Perhaps I am stating an obvious point that you are already aware of -
"Links" in F.H. point to data at a specific address. If you recover from
backup, or move your pictures for any reason, either the file structure
address where the pictures are stored must be identical to what existed
before, or the links in F.H must be changed to point to the new address.
If this IS obvious, I apologise.

Subject: [FHU] reply to your response to my question about loss of
Thank you for your quick reply. I am beginning to wonder if there is a
problem with my computer and I will
ask a friend to investigate this before asking you any more questions.
For the record my photos were definetly linked and not embedded. I had
similar problems when I changed
my computer some months ago. I backed up my previous material to a CD and
when I transferred this to the new
computer the photos did not transfer and a large X appeared in the original
space. Previousl;y I had used four
folders using each grandparent as a root. When I got my new computer I
inserted all individuals in a composite tree
on the advice I received from rootsweb chat. I was dellighted with the
result until the entry via file of Family Historian
failed. I did not get any help from trying File validation or work with
external file links in tools.
I am hoping that I can sort this out so that I will not have to restart a
completely new database.
I am full of praise for all the help given to your correspondents.
