-===== V4 and Above - Projects ​=====+===== Export ​and Import Options ​=====
  
-The simplest way to move these is to copy the entire folder to the new computer using Windows ​**File Explorer** (Windows key + E) via some intermediate storage such as a USB pen drive. This will move the **[[glossary:​gedcom]]** file itselfall your linked ​**Multimedia** in the **Media** sub-folderand any other project filesto the new computer.+As of {{fh}} ​**Version 3** there are options on the **File** menu to allow single itemssuch as a **Query** or **Text Scheme** to be exported to a folder ​of your choice ​and to import new items in. This works well when sharing single items with other usersbut can be time consuming as a method of backing-up or moving things where you have many custom items.
  
-If Family Historian ​Version 5 or later is installed on both PC, then on the old PC you can use **File > Backup/​Restore > Full Backup (Entire Project Folder)**, copy the **FH Project Backup - ... .zip** file to the new PC, and use **File > Backup/​Restore > Restore Backup** on this file.+===== Version 4 and Above - Projects ===== 
 + 
 +The simplest way to move these is to copy the entire folder to the new computer using Windows **File Explorer** (Windows key + E) via some intermediate storage such as a USB pen drive memory stick. This will move the [[Glossary:​Gedcom]] file itself, all your linked **Multimedia** in the **Media** sub-folder, and any other project files, to the new computer. 
 + 
 +If {{fh}} **Version 5** or later is installed on both PC, then on the old PC you can use **File > Backup/​Restore > Full Backup (Entire Project Folder)**, copy the **FH Project Backup - ... .zip** file to the new PC, and use **File > Backup/​Restore > Restore Backup** on this file.
  
 However, with either method above, if you keep your **Multimedia** outside the Project folder, then they will need to be copied separately, but will almost certainly result in '​broken links' on the new PC. However, with either method above, if you keep your **Multimedia** outside the Project folder, then they will need to be copied separately, but will almost certainly result in '​broken links' on the new PC.
  
-For the above to work satisfactorily,​ all **Multimedia** image file links must use **Relative Paths** and NOT **Full Paths**, otherwise they will all become '​broken links'​. To check, use **Tools > Work with External File Links** and ensure all links are within **Project Data Folder - Media**, and drive letters such as **C:** are NOT mentioned. To convert **Full Paths** then use **Re-map within Project Data Folder** or run the V5/V6 Plugin [[fhcalico>​pluginstore/​plugin-entry?​id=277|Check and Repair Media Links]].+For the above to work satisfactorily,​ all **Multimedia** image file links must use **Relative Paths** and NOT **Full Paths**, otherwise they will all become '​broken links'​.

-===== Export and Import in FH ===== +
- +
-As of V3 there are options on the File menu of FH to allow single items, such as a **Query** or **Text Scheme** to be exported to a folder of your choice and to import new items in.  This works well when sharing single items with other users, but can be time consuming as a method of backing-up or moving things where you have many custom items. +
- +
-===== Windows Easy Transfer ===== +
- +
-Nowadays your new PC will probably use **Windows 7** or **Windows 8**, which include the free **Windows Easy Transfer** utility in **Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools**, or type **Windows Easy Transfer** into the **Search** box. +
- +
-This utility copies all **My Documents** folders and files, and program settings and data from your old PC to the new PC (but it does not install the programs themselves). See the **[[http://​windows.microsoft.com/​en-GB/​windows7/​products/​features/​windows-easy-transfer|Windows Easy Transfer]]** web pages for full details, including the operating systems supported, and the various transfer communication methods. +
- +
-If you have a broadband router with multiple LAN ports or WiFi support, then simply connect both PC to the router at the same time and **Windows Easy Transfer** will copy your data from the old PC to the new PC via the router network connection. Other communication methods include an Easy Transfer USB cable, or USB flash drive, or external hard disk. +
- +
-The utility should transfer your GEDCOM file, FH Project Folder, and FH Application Settings, along with the other documents and settings of each user account. If any data is not transferred successfully,​ then use the techniques below to complete the transfer. +
- +
-If transferring from **Windows XP**, then check that the folders and files in **C:​\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Calico Pie\Family Historian\** are copied to **C:​\ProgramData\Calico Pie\Family Historian\** as explained in **[[#​Transferring the Folders]]** below. +
- +
-One limitation of **[[http://​windows.microsoft.com/​en-GB/​windows7/​products/​features/​windows-easy-transfer|Windows Easy Transfer]]** that has been reported is that it does not cope well if the disk drive letters and usage are not organised the same way on both PC.+
