I use PAF release 3.
Recently I had an HD problem and PAF did not work well yet. The program doesn't access some individuals more. The browse mode has blanks in certain names. Making scan operation and fix problems, the program list several problems and after a time it scape from program (showing or not "fatal error" advise). Searching names (as in normal mode as in browse mode) it can go out of the program too (in certain names). In general the error message tells records "out of range". In more than 20 years of genealogy search, I have more than 55,000 names and I wish a form to solve the problems and preserve my data. I don't stop the genealogic research but I avoid to put the informations on the PAF archive now.
