I am sure there is a way to do it directly in the program. What I do is go to my Easy CD Creator Program. I select the one that I can share my information with others and just select my FTM FBK backup & also the Family Files. I may not need to copy both of these 2 files, but I do for safety reasons. I believe the newer versions have where you can do it directly (check the file menu, possibly exporting files.) I also keep a copy of my extra pictures on a cd also. I have FTM Version 6 and have not upgraded further as yet.
