Location of Gedcom\'s & Zed\'s for export
pohlmann
- Close
Under/ General>Projects directory: it states that the location is 'C:Program FilesMyHeritageData' But the gedcom's and zed's are not located in this directory. The folder is indexed and I have applied archiving attributes but the gedcom and zed files cannot be located in this folder. I have performed a computer search but they cannot be found. Are they hidden, and how do I access them? Thank you.

Hi Paul, It seems to be an old description for an older Windows version. I don't remember which version (it's a longer time ago ;-)

Under Windows 7 You find this files with this path:

C: .. Users .. loginname .. Documents .. MyHeritage .. ftbprojectname .. Database .. ftbprojectname.zed

where:

..                          means the backslash (I don't know why it will be suppressed)

loginname              is Your Windows login name

ftbprojectname       is Your FTB Project

This is the exact path (on Windows 7).

You will find this 'Documents' directory via 'My Documents' as the following, too:

My Documents .. MyHeritage .. ftbprojectname .. Database .. ftbprojectname.zed

 

The path, where You find the GEDCOM files depends on the last save location You did use during a GEDCOM export from FTB.

Hope this helps.

Best regards Remo

Thank you Remo for your assistance. I am running Windows 7. I suspect I am running the current version of MyHeritage Family Tree Builder: although you wouldn't know as the properties of the version I downloaded 7 April 2013 states: 'File Version 0.0.0.0'; Product Version: 0,0,0,0' And that's coming from the application specific. See attachment. This programme was downloaded from MyHeritage.com yesterday 7 April 2013. When I was running the programme on my other computer: XP, it saved the gedom's to the file I nominated: Tools>Options>General>Projects Directory:___, but with this download: downloaded yesterday on my laptop running W7, it has chosen itself on install: C:Program FilesMyHeritageData, and the gedcom and zed files are not located there. When you open a project: it states the directory it is sourcing the zed file from: C:Program FilesMyHeritageDataJohn Smith.zed, but it is not housed there, both in the hidden and unhidden state. (Re: Load Genealogy Project)

The files are not located in C:UsersDefaultDocuments.

After starting the laptop today, the name of the project reflects in the search: "C:Program FilesMyHeritageFamiliesJohn SmithDatabase" It didn't yesterday: so rebooting the laptop has recognized it. (Which it shouldn't do: it should reflect in 'search programs and files' once saved) But if you right click on the icon and open file location a 'problem with shortcut' window states: 'The item 'John Smith' that this shortcut refers to has been changed or moved, so this shortcut will no longer work properly.' However when I start MyHeritage Family Tree Builder, the last project magically loads with my project: but from where?

I do not have problems locating files on my laptop, but MyHeritage has chosen to locate the files in a location: not where it states it is; not where I have stated in the designated folder Tools>Options>General>Projects Directory:___: but in a place that I cannot locate but the programme can?? Refer to attachments.

You should be able to just type in the file types in the search box: gedcom; zed, but they do not appear?? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-au/windows7/advanced-tips-for-searching-in-windows I then copied and pasted one from a disc into a folder and the search box found it straight away.

Why cannot it not locate the gedcom and zed files associated with MyHeritage.

Thank you, Paul.

(It will probably not load my images of MyHeritage programme as I have tried several times)

Hi Paul,

Try the following:

Open the control panel Folder Options and there is the 'View' Tab. Select under Hidden files and folders  the 'Show hidden files, folders, and drives'.

Now You should be able to see all the folders W7 use for user data etc.

btw: the file extension for GEDCOM files is ged, not gedcom as You've written.

And, sorry for the wrong data path. It could be, that I had changed it to hold all datas on the same place ;-)

The file & product version is 0.0.0.0. Unfortunately, most of the software developer don't set this infos in their products.

Hope this helps a little bit. It's difficult to examine as a blind flight, You know ;-) 

Best regards

Remo

Hi Remo,

Thank you for your assistance.

I have located the folder that contains the data. Even though MyHeritage saves to the folder that I previously specified: it does not save it there, and causes other problems. Even in the unhidden state it does not exist. I explained this much earlier.

MyHeritage saves all data to C:\Users\home\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\MyHeritage.

Problems are systemic if the source data is not correctly associated with the path: you cannot generate books and charts if the programme cannot directly identify where the data is stored even though the programme is storing the data, saving it to a different location other than displayed and when drawing from. (I really wish I was able to post the .bmp's I have saved of the many errors and problems into this forum, as it would assist the dveloper and those that want to resolve problems.)

MyHeritage Version 6.0.0 Build 5634 on installation chose the path it was saving its own data to in C:\Program Files\MyHeritage\Data, but in fact it was not saving it there at all: it was saving it to C:\Users\home\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\MyHeritage. .: Within the operational programme: go to Tools>Options>General>Projects Directory>(And then add: C:\Users\home\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\MyHeritage\Data)

Forget about '2. Attachments' as they are either vetted or blocked.

Paul.

Hi Paul,

Thank You for this interesting feedback.

There are 2 reasons, I did not have/had this problems. I did change the project path to my 'central' data location, I've written before. And the 2nd reason is that I'm using another genealogy software for reporting purpose.

To send Your error and problem BMPs & descriptions to support@myheritage.com

I always do it this way. Sometimes it could be, that an answer doesn't come quickly because the pending list is quite long ;-)

But usually, they don't forget the senders.

Best regards

Remo
