Family Tree Maker and New Laptop

Postby TheBakerFamily » Fri Dec 28, 2018 12:40 pm

I have recently had to purchase a new laptop and would like to transfer my family history research to it. I have Family Tree Maker 2006. I have 3 questions:
How do I transfer it?
What do I need to do to update the software as I have been told that some of the facilities no longer work?
Finally would the information be automatically backed up when I do my weekly back up of my computer using the Windows facility?
Although confident using a computer no so familiar with more technical information.
Any advice would be really appreciated. Family research has been on hold for a while, but family now older and I have more time to get back to it.

Since the 'Live Chats' section isn't active at the moment, I've moved this query to 'Genealogy chat'.
