From your desktop do a file backup

Transfer the .FTMB file to your laptop

Restore it with your copy of FTM on your laptop

Use it in the normal way except any AMT

When you return from travel make another .FTMB file from your laptop

Copy this back to your desktop in to the same folder as it originated from

Now the potentially tricky bit

Rename your "old" FTM file something else

Now restore the .FTMB file keeping the same file name

Now do a file restore

Alternatively....

You can certainly do it by simply copying the .FTM file. My thought with the .FTMB file is that you also deal with the media



What i would do though is make a dummy file and try it before you commit to the main file
