was not sure where to post this so opted for a new topic....fyi i used to use PAF and it was wonderful, i knew it like the back of my hand. sadly since moving to MAC that is not an option. So i found Rootsmagic which seemed pretty good. except for now....
i am running most recent version of roots magic. tho i have not been using it in quite some time i recently got into it again.
my 120gb hard drive on macbook was getting full so i opted to copy all my genealogy folders to external drives figuring i could access those files from my mac. well, not so. the folder was greyed out.
i did manage to make a copy of that folder and copied the family file to my HD and got my data opened.
been having lots of little issue but maddening. I opened on macbook the family file and entered some new individuals and updates to a few others. at that point i did not do a backup. so when I saw that my info was not in the file, i again reentered it. and did a backup.
today i logged into enter another persons info and found that all the info i had entered previously is not there. i could not open the backup file .rmgb either. so what good is that file if one cannot open it.
so first off, what am i doing wrong in that my info is not being saved in the file i am working on?
i will keep trying to figure this out while waiting for a reply.
