RootsMagic stores the information you enter in a database (or file). RootsMagic provides the following commands for working with databases.

When you exit RootsMagic, you are prompted to backup the current database. However, if you close a database from within RootsMagic, the program does not automatically backup the database before closing it. Therefore, before you close a database from within RootsMagic, you must do the backup yourself by selecting "File, Backup" from the main menu, if you want to create a backup (and you should!)
