I do backups usually each night when I'm done and rename them by date. I've tried the "Restore" option by clicking FILE > RESTORE, but the tree I want doesn't show up in that folder, however it is there when I just look on my computer. I've also tried to click on NEW TREE > Import from an existing file and BROWSE, but again, it doesn't show up. Only my media files folder is there. I've also found the most current one in the folder I saved it and clicked OPEN WITH > FAMILY TREE MAKER 2012, but it was taking FOREVER to load so I pushed cancel. When I say forever, I started early yesterday evening and when I woke up this morning it was still in the about same spot. It seems to go rather quickly at first, then then the bar that shows how much is complete is still at the same spot.
