I know this sounds simple, but I don't know if I know what you mean(?) How do you do a backup? Is that the same as just "save?"OR, I subscribe to Carbonite which backs all the time that the internet is on. Will that accomplish what you're suggesting. I have FTM 2012 on my Laptop (Windows.) and will go to 2014 this month...do you all recommend going to 2014? I'm still learning basics of FTM 2012. I LOVE ancestry online but wanted the security (!) of not being online plus the new reports etc.
