Identifying Media Files

Hi

I have 443 sub-folders in my media library and I am trying to find out if there's a way of identifying the media sub-folder number from within Heredis 2015.

For example, the main image that I use for my record is in a folder called #2615 but there appears to be no way within Heredis of identifying this image as being located in D:\Family Tree\BSD Concept\Heredis\Heredis Files\Andrew.hmw\Media\#2615

If anybody has any idea then I'd be grateful for their advice.

Thanks

Hi,

This info cannot be found within Heredis 2015. You would have to prepare the file for Mac ( File > Prepare for Mac) and then open the resulting heredis file through a 3rd party sorftware (such as Sqlite studio) to browse the database. You also need to learn how to navigate a database and should retrieve the info you looking for.

I wonder why you would need to do so ?
