Damn Windows.

My family tree database now has an error because windows didn't properly close the program before it rebooted. My backup of one day ago is also corrupt for some reason. Now I've had to go back 4 days and re-enter everything I've added for the past four days.

It turned out ok. The error was not with any of the families I've look at recently. I loaded the corrupt backup and copied the notes from the four families over to the old error-free file.
