As MM3 and MM4 are no longer supported, we encourage everyone to upgrade to Historian software. |If you are still using MM3, there are many new features in Historian and MM4 that you are missing out on, but all your old favorites are still there. When you are ready to make the move, here are the instructions for converting your existing Memory Vault to Historian.
Open Historian or MM4.
Find the Memory Vault you wish to open. In my example, this was a Memory Vault I created for a trip to Europe several years ago. I haven’t opened it in quite a while since all my albums are completed. You can identify if a Memory Vault has not been converted as it has a slightly different icon. Click on the selected Memory Vault and click “Select Folder”
You will see the following message. It is important to know that this conversion cannot be undone. Once you open a Memory Vault in MM4 or Historian, you will no longer be able to open it in MM3, so don’t make the conversion until you are ready. When you are ready, click “Yes”.
You need to decide if you want to allow Face Recognition or not. If you choose not to allow Face Recognition at this stage, it can be turned on in the Properties settings at any stage. Click “Yes” or “No”.
That’s all there is to it. Historian / MM4 will open the Memory Vault. Although some things will look a little different, all your photos will still be there, as will your organization. All your existing Sort Boxes will now be called Categories, and your Folders will be called Tags but they will have the same labels. Your star ratings, Print Track, Tell the Story and other item properties are unchanged. (In the following illustration, Historian looks the same as MM4)
