I tried this multiple times, reducing the number each time. The first file had 2441 people and I don't know how many media files. The last try had 10 individuals and 73 media files and it still stopped FTM. I have most of what I was going to give her in another directory on my laptop, so will just go with that. However, the problem still bothers me.
I have a large file (54,000 people) with no media in FTM 2006 that I just imported into FTM2011 and it worked. I need to figure out what I want out of this file. It seems like part of the problem with this is that I am doing a restore rather than an import. Importing doesn't give you the option to use the export file created from FTM2011.
