FTM "To Go"

Posted: 1359015608000
Classification: Query
So here is related question #2:

With my FTM installed on a desktop computer, synced to an AFT (using TreeSync), is it possible to copy my FTM file to a laptop for off-site research and work? I plan to do some travel to visit family members, and want to have my FTM tree with me. I don't want to use ancestry.com to work on my tree with these family members -- I would prefer to have my FTM file. I am concerned about returning home, copying the file back to the desktop machine, and then having sync issues with AFT (again, using TreeSync).

How have others managed this? Any words of advice or tricks? Should I avoid syncing to ancestry.com (TreeSync) while using the file on the laptop, or would it not matter as long as I copy the file back to the main computer (desktop) when I get back home?

I'd appreciate learning from your experiences... Thanks!

--Jeff
