I have FTM 2006, but I believe that I can give you advise. On your old version you have 2 files of FBK a backup file and family file. If the one does not work, try the other one. When I make a copy of my file, I always copy both of these files just to be safe. Also you may have to check when you "open" the file, that it lists at the bottom, the type that it is. I have never had that problem, except with the free Chart Champion that came with my FTM 2006. Good luck with your new program and I hope this helps.
