When I upgraded from Roots Magic 5 to 6, the program took data from an out of date file and removed my geneology files that were up to date. While I can take the time to manually enter data from the file from 2011, this is totally unsatisfactory.

Installing the program does not remove any data.

You may have opened an out of date file, but the others should still be there somewhere.
Try doing the File > Open > Search for files.
You may find that lost data unless you manually deleted a folder containing the data, in that case, it should still be in your recycle bin.
