Thanks FredMcD. I managed to get the first part done but seem to have made a mistake with the copying onto the new system. Put all the items (10,000 odd) onto a thumb drive in a folder called New Folder then copied onto the new computer. They are there but are not being picked up. Not sure what I am doing wrong?
