opening stored paf files
Posted by: John Richardson (ID *****8334) Date: March 23, 2009 at 04:56:42

I have awful trouble understanding the way that I should store my PAF/GEDCOM files.
I have created a family tree using the FamilySearch downloaded PAF 5.2!
When I have finished working, and exit I get the prompt to backup the file. This i do into a folder in My Documents.

When I try to resume work on the file i get the message saying that the file is unavailable in the READ/WRITE form, and do I want to open it in the READ ONLY format.
Everything I backup seems to produce this message and also the file is ZIPPED to boot.

ANY assistance would be MOST appreciated
