Version 6.0 to 2011

Oh, dear! Looking at all the topics, I'm afraid of what is ahead. I copied my version 6 over to my Vaio laptop computer earlier this year. It has Windows 7. I have not had any problem using FTM, but today I was unable to access the Help function. I still have the version 6 installed on our old desk top so I can get the help menu on that computer. But this got me worried about the safety of my files/program. I have been unable to upload any photos for a year or so because of the new camera & scanner.

What I want to know now before I buy FTM 2011, is will it capture my data and what do I need to install the newer version??? I really do not like the look of the newer program, but I'm afraid if I don't upgrade soon, my nearly 2000 individuals might lost.
