In Response To: family tree maker inquiry ()
I am still back on version 10 from 2002 so this may be dated information. I recall that FTM incorporated a feature to specifically backup to cd-r/w but I fould the feature to be a little unusual but I can't recall why. FTM has 2 files for each family files you have. So if you have a Smith family file then you would have a smith.FTM and a smith.FBK (backup) file. If you also have a Jones family file the you would similarly a jones.FTM and a jones.FBK file. I have all of my family files in a seperate directory from the FTM program files which are usually in C:\FTW.
