FH Project (Medium & Full) Backups include all subfolders of the Project .fh_data folder so the answer is ‘Yes, the former’.

Hi Mike


Does the backup include subfolders of the Media folder or just the Media folder. I would assume the former?

I use

Media (just for pictures of people)






etc. where those with > are sub folders


Best Wishes

It does not matter where the image starts and all options are feasible. What matters is where it ends up.

Both AS and FH allow the image to be anywhere and have the option to copy it into the Project internal Media folder.

It is important to know that only images that are copied into the Project internal Media folder are included in FH Project Backups.

If images are left linked externally to the Project then you must use other methods to back them up.

They may also cause problems when you migrate the Project to a new PC, which will happen sooner or later.
