Russ,

After backing up my Mom's data today, I have a few more questions. I assume that the files I'm looking for were in a FTM folder in the My Documents folder? There is close to a hundred of them. I kind of lost on the FTW files I need to copy over. Should I be looking at the file names with the extension of.FTW or should I look at the file type, FTW? For instance,there is one tree with three files named: smith family.FBK.FBK.FTW / smith family.FBK.FTW and smith family.FTW. All three of these files are listed under type FTW File in windows explorer. I wish that I could send you a screen shot of what I'm looking at, I'm sure it would make more sense to you other than my explanation. My Mom had said that she had some duplications and by looking at all of these files, I can see why! I would like to get her set back up with everything being correct, but it could take some doing!

Thanks again for your help!
