John, thank you for the reply. I have printed your message and will take it to the company building my new computer.
I did not use a GEDCOM when importing the data to the 2010 version of FTM and I did compact the files before importing. I tried it several times and it still lost some (not all) of my photos. We were never able to figure out why. I gave up because I didn't want to have to go through 40 years of information to find out what was wrong with each entry. I have now backed up my files to flashdrives and a portable hard drive. I am in the process of printing reports so I will have hard copies of all my data. It appears that may cost me a small fortune in ink and paper.
Thank you again.
