In 7.5, the directions for compacting a file says to open the Family File you wish to compact, press ctrl+alt+C, and FTM will display a progress meter wile it compacts the file. I did that but got an error message during that process, too. Tried backup file and got the same thing. Something is corrupt in the FTW file, so it looks like I'm stuck with an old computer and FTM 7.5 unless someone has a solution for repairing such a file. Thanks for your help though.
