Re: Sync problems duplicating entries

I have had 'sync' problems with 1 particular tree since installing the Ancestry FTM software for the MAC. I continued to try to sync the tree, but unbeknown to me the software was duplicating the entries every time. I now have 7,650 in my tree as opposed to 800! The FTM files saved on my Mac are huge as people have been duplicated 60+ times along with all the sources.

I started to delete the duplicates but it is just an impossible task & I'm thinking that my only option is to delete the tree and start again, soul destroying. I am at my wits end. I have a saved GEDCOM file but it was saved in April 2012 which means I will have lost 6 months work.

So be warned, take backups. The FTM automatic backups overwrite the previously saved file.

Has this happened to anyone else? Any ideas apart from starting over?
