I uninstalled FTM and wiped out all the files and started from scratch by reinstalling the FTM and using the original file to restore the data. I then did the upload and link step and it worked like a dream. After about 3 hours I got the Media Completed message and after checking the tree out on Ancestry it looks like all the media files are there.
I want to thank you so much for your help. You do a great job by helping those of us who are clueless!
