"One of the problems is the media that is stored in the software that takes us a lot of room. It would be good if we had the option to choose to dwld the media or not. Have you ever reviewed the media stored in the software? I know I haven't. If I need to review a source again, I do so online. What do you think?"

I do not have any media stored on/in FTM 2012. All My media are stored in a separate microsoft windows file. I have done this on purpose so as not to bog down FTM 2012 [As an aside I have never stored my media within the software/data base. When I had FTW 2006 v16 I kept my media outside of FTW because I didn't want to bog FTW down and I was awaiting the update to FTW and hoping I would be able to load my media within the system when they released FTM 2008 Needless to say FTW 2008 was a step backward and consequently I have never included my media in the system]

All of the above, at least to me, indicates it is not the media which is slowing the system down, crashing, etc.[PS I dont use synch and I don't have my data loaded on line, so at least for me, these features are not what is causing my system to be slow, crash etc]

I am almost at my wits end on this, but still hoping some improvement will be made on FTM 2014 ----------which is one reason I am hoping that users with large files will participate in the BETA.

A lot of large file users have been complaining about this for a long time, so I think/hope they should/would take advantage of the BETA offer and thoroughly test the FTM 2014 system
