Title

Self-contained copy does not embed container data

Post

     In order to migrate all old data container references to the new external storage in FM12, I am trying to save a self-contained copy of our current database so that all images are embedded. When I choose this option from File>Save a Copy As, it saves a version of the file that is larger in filesize. However, when this file is opened, the only images that were previously embedded are embedded, and the other images do not appear if I break the directory link on my computer to where those images were stored. I ensured that I had checked the option for "self-contained copy (single file)." If anyone can offer some insight into how to use this tool or somehow show me another way to embed all images, I would be very grateful. Thank you.
