I have been trying to export a gedcom file from FO but when I try to do this it keeps telling me that the disc is full. HELP. Any suggestion how I can do this. I have over 2000 names and would hate to have to manually re-enter them. I am able to do a backup ok.

Go to File > Import in RM4 and click the radio button next to "Family Origins (version 4 and later)", and click the "I know where the file is" button. Navigate to your FOW file (you'll need the other associated FO8 files with it in the same folder), and proceed from there.
Not sure about the error message, but in the unlikely event that you don't have enough hard drive space to create the new file with the data from your FO8 file, you'll need to somehow free it up.

I think it was Windows XP when this started. Family Origins didn't understand the new file system and and disk over two GB had that problem. The solution was to send the GEDCOM file to an eternal disk or divide the new, larger hard drives into a smaller partition in which to export a GEDCOM file.
