My understanding is that just copying the FTM file and media folder is not enough. One needs a file that contains the sync information. See this thread for details. http://boards.ancestry.com/topics.software.famtreemaker/9489...

The other option is to do a restore on the new computer of a FTM backup file made on the old computer. One of the patches to FTM 2012 was to allow the backup to retain and restore the sync/link info.

One month of data additions could be a challenging sync, but should work. If it does not work, the other option is to just break link on the AMT on Ancestery and download, link/sync the AMT to the new computer.
