I had huge problems with sync on the 2012 version including massive duplication of data (up to 12 times for some stuff). That took many months to clean up but I think I've got it all now.
I changed to version 2014 immediately it was available and practically all of the problems disappeared. Just once since there was permanent sync failure and I recovered from that by downloading my data from Ancestry.
Got it Now to clean up tree from all the double and triple info put here. Thanks again Russ
I have the 2012 version. Is there any place here to change this? Will play with it this morning as I have time now.
In FTM2014, Plan Workspace, Change from AutoSync to ManualSync
I have been having problems with the FTM "synch" Every time I am on Ancestry or just working on the tree it starts to synch. I have allowed it to do this but have now found out I have multiple family lines started that do not connect to the tree. I have been printing off these lines then deleting that section and start adding it to the person in my tree. This is really time consuming. Does any one else have this problem.
Please join the Family Tree Maker Fan's group and start a new discussion on the Issue / Concerns you have about FTM2012 and the TreeSync™ feature.
Hi, I'm new here and apologise if I'm wanting to discuss an issue that is already being discussed here or elsewhere. I use Family Tree Maker synchronised with my tree on Ancestry.com. I have had a lot of problems with synchronisation failing and the fallout from that. I need to discuss what is good practice in preserving information to minimise the effects of failure and the work involved in getting things back together. There seems to me to be so many issues to discuss about this that another group or a new group might be more appropriate. Is there somewhere appropriate to get into in-depth discussion on this?
