Catastrophe in Ultimate Family Tree De Luxe.

Please HELP!
I have one project with 900 individuals + several hundred place names + dozens of sources. I have not previously been on the internet & have only just realised that the software I use has been discontinued........

Whilst trying to clear a Foxeprow message on Start-up I reinstalled the program. Every single PLACE Name & SOURCE name has disappeared & been replaced by a number. Some Event details seem ok. I have consistently backed up my data on floppy discs & thought that backing up would put things right, but no luck.

When I looked up Trouble Shooting in the manual it would seem that my Library Files have been corrupted - Do you agree?

Why wont the Floppies restore ALL my data? What am I doing wrong?

Can I continue repair the damage?

Should I change my genealogy package (to what?), & if so can I transfer/import ALL my data?

Many thanks for any help ~ Mary
