I ran into a REALLY odd problem today. I moved to a new laptop and Windows 7 (from XP) in January. PAF installed and worked perfectly - I thought. I've always copied my .PAF data file (which resides in the FamilySearch/PAF directory)to my backup hard drive and other locations for backup purposes. Today I copied that file to a thumb drive and noticed that the date on the file was still January 2011, HOWEVER the data IN the file (when opened by me with PAF on my computer) is correct and shows the updates I made just yesterday (7/9/2011). I copied the file anyway and placed it on my daughter's computer so she could have the latest updates I'd made (she doesn't enter any data, just looks at what I have). I then opened the file in PAF on her computer and it did NOT show the information entered recently (I assume it's only showing through January). I then went back to my computer, did a BACKUP of the file, letting it create another .PAF file on the desktop; copied that one to her computer and the data is perfectly up to date. Any idea why this happened?
