WARNING - I received FTM 2012 in the mail today. Usually I am not this excited, but the ability to Sync has me intrigued. So I immediately installed. It did it's installation of software, backup of files and then opened and started to open the file, converting it to the new file format. IT THEN CRASHED, CORRUPTING THE FILE. After a couple of hours of work, I found the backup, brought up FTM 2011, restored my file, then uninstalled FTM 2012. They will have to twist my arm to get me to try it again, and I need a refund of the money I spent for the upgrade.
