RootsMagic only prompts you to backup your databases when you exit the program. If you edit a database and are ready to close it, but not exit the program, you must run the backup program from the File, Backup menu before closing the database.
The above Caution is from the RootsMagic5 documentation. I just noticed that there was no Backup prompt and did the research to learn why. It's nothing serious once users are aware of how it works.
