What is an FTMB file?
Backup file created by Family Tree Maker, a genealogy organization program; contains backup data for a .FTM or .FTW Family Tree file, such as family data, media files, and historical events.
To create the FTMB file:
- Select File → Backup....
- A "Backup" window should open with the default name of your FTMB file, change it or keep it.
- Choose the location where you want to save the FTMB file. "Removable media" means a CD, DVD, external hard drive, USB flash drive, etc. "Working directory" is the location where your current work is saved. "Custom directory" is whatever save location you desire.
- Finally, decide what data you want included in the FTMB file and click OK.
