My current trees in Family Tree Maker 2012 have all VANISHED! I did not delete them,FTM 2012 did. Has anyone else had FTM trees vanish?
I am a long-time user of FTM in man upgrades versions for about 10 years. I had Synchronized with Ancestry.com on the main tree with 4,385 records. That is still there. Ironically the older family tree files remained on FTM 2012!
A friend who also uses FTM (I do not know which year version) had ALL OF HIS NOTES AND CITATIONS for about 7,000 people VANISH.
I therefore have no confidence in FTM 2012. [CONFIDENCE IN FTM 2012 IS BASICALLY RESTORED AND THE MISSING FILES WERE FOUND USING *.ftm - PLEASE FOLLOW THIS THREAD FOR SOME WISE ANSWERS. - CMS 2012-10-07]
