Forgive me if this the wrong place to post this. I have an issue that's probably easy to resolve, but I'm unsure how to do it. I tried searching for an answer but didn't find any that were *specific* enough for me to proceed. I'm hesitant to move forward for fear of losing something forever. Here is my issue:
On an earlier tree (made in rootsmagic 6 or earlier) I had a person note that was basically a biography of the person and his immediate family. Somewhere along the line (possibly during an upgrade) it vanished! I have other small bios written in Notes under Person Details. They all survived whatever action it was that caused the loss. I do, however, have several backups saved to a flash drive. Each was made with an earlier version of Rootsmagic. I'm currently using 7. Is there a way to "open" a backup to look at the info I lost? I understand how to use the File>Restore function, but it is my understanding this will overwrite my current tree. I read something about doing it into a different directory (my answer lies therein, I"d imagine) but that is something beyond my skill level. Can someone help me (with step by step instructions) a way to do what I want to do? If all else fails, I'll just have to start researching everything a second time.
Thanks for any assistance you can provide me. You can always email me if this is not the appropriate place for this inquiry.
