I've searched the forums and only can find messages from 2002 regarding the migration to a new computer. I made a backup of my FTM 2012 tree files (including all of my media). I installed FTM to my new computer, went through the registration process, then restored by trees from the newly created backup.
This is where it gets frustrating. Instead of seeing that I have restored from backup and recognizing the trees were already synced, it sees these as new trees, and not synced. When I sync them I now have two of each tree on my online trees.
I delete the older trees because I know the newer ones are from the new sync. But I would not expect this. The only draw back is having to add contributors back to the new synced trees.
Is there a step I'm missing that would prevent this from happening? Like having FMT recognize I already have a tree by this name, do I want to add a new or sync the one that already exists?
