The consolation is that you aren't likely to lose your tree on Ancestry, even if something happens to your computer. You will also still be able to see it if you stop subscribing.

I'm afraid it's going to be the same with any Gedcom backup - no images or photos. Maybe there is someone on here who has worked out a way round it.

I have the paid for Legacy 9 and it backs up on line to Legacy Cloud, as well as your own back up, so if you can't do that with the basic Legacy 9, then it is probably cheaper to upgrade to the Legacy 9 than pay for Ancestry or other program.  It's only 34.95 to download.

I see you actually want to copy from an Ancestry tree, but as the others have said even if you do that you will have to instal all the images and photos again as far as I know.

I'm not too sure if I am correct here - someone will perhaps enlighten me.
If you have saved/downloaded Ancestry Records to your tree - they will not be visible to you if you do not have a subscription.

RootsMagic v7 allows you to download a copy of the tree with all media as with FTM2017.  This works in both the free and paid for versions of RootsMagic, but you can only "sync" subsequent changes in the paid version.  If using the free version, you have to download the full tree again to get any updates you make.
