In Reply to: Need some help - PAF 5.1 by Kathye [Payne] Upham of 4837

Kathye ... click YES - it will backup ALL data entered, including the material that was just added. I have several sets of disks that I rotate when I do my backup. That way I also have some spares, so to speak.

Think that you will find that PAF5.1 will work without the mouse if you can remember all the shortcut keys for the vatious functions. It is really easier with the mouse. I had not used the mouse a lot - was pretty much an MS-DOS based operator - had Windows but didn't use it much. But I have learned to love my mouse AND PAF5.1 as I want to add pictures and the capability to scan documents into my program. I have been a PAF user for over 12 years and am still learning new ways to utilize the program. Have some other genealogical software that I use for certain tasks but PAF is my mainstay.

Good luck with the new version - enjoy!
