Transfering FTM with media to a new computer
Posted by: Rodney Elliott (ID *****2837) Date: January 16, 2013 at 20:09:03

I want to transfer FTM 2010 to a new computer. I've read the instructions but want I want to do is a little more complicated. On the old computer FTM is installed on drive C & media etc is on Drive E.

It works ok but it has to do a quick search to find the media. Still ok but I think I'd rather have the media saved inside of FTM rather than having FTM search.

Is it possible to do that on the old computer first, then transfer it to the new computer?

I thought about installing FTM on the same drive as the media but I think even that will not accomplish what I want.

The OS is on an SSD drive C for both computers.

Thanks for your thoughts
