Changing the name and location of Exhibit files

Changing the name and location of Exhibit files

I have been storing my Exhibit files in a tree format. Am realizing this will not work well as my TMG file grows. Want to rename all of my exhibit files and store them all in one folder.

Should they be renamed first and then moved; or moved first and then renamed?

What do you consider the most efficient/easiest method of renaming many exhibit files? Of relocating many exhibit files?

May I suggest that you join the TMG group at http://lists.rootsweb.ancestry.com/index/other/Software/TMG.... and ask this question there? I believe that you find there are many members who can answer this question.

Thank you for the link. I was told to go to the TMG-L and inadvertently posted here instead. (Seldom post.) Will plan to post there in a few days if it is still needed.

Have learned how to easily change the location of Exhibit files. First physically move the files to the desired location. Second, in TMG, go to File - Maintenance - Validate File Integrity. Then Specify the Folders to Search (where the files are now residing). It worked beautifully!!
