I am considering an ACT! 2000 to ACT! Pro 2013 conversion.
Here are what I see as the issues:
1. SQL 2008 - shouldn't be a problem - I have a number of Microsoft Access projects running Microsoft SQL 2008 on my servers.
2. Attachments - this may be a large problem. I have 6,825 attached files in 753 folders using 5.28GB worth of disk space. I don't want to move these attached files to a single directory (I want to leave them where they are).
Please tell me that I can do a comprehensive conversion!

From memory you can convert and link the attachments rather than embed inside the database. I would suggest you either engage a consultant to assit or do a search on using redflags on your existing database first
I generally do conversions to an earlier version than jumping straight to anything beyond version 8 or 9 first.
