Thank you Cathy,
Your explanation was very clear and helpful. As a not very computer-literate

The Legacy data backup zips all the files related to your family file together. 
How many there are depends on which features of Legacy you have used. I have 
about 30.
In previous versions you were given some control over which ones were included 
but that was confusing to many and the option has been removed.

If you have Set Relationships you'll have a .Rc3 file as part of your backup.

To see what most of the extensions mean search Legacy Help Index for "file 
extension" (without the quotes).
familyfilename.Rc3      Relationship term spill file
familyfilename.Rc3.Rc3      Backup of Relationship spill file

If only the .fdb was included in the backup you would lose your relationship 
settings and clipboards etc when you restored a backup.

Hello Cathy,

With regard to the: Rc3.Rc3 that Marie has on her back-up, can you
please explain whether this is a regular “extension” (not sure what to
call it) or a problem that has occurred. I have noticed this on my
back-ups also.

I suspect on your new computer the associations to files are different.

Legacy backup files have always been a zipped file and show the icon for
the program that is associa ted with .zip files. If you haven't added
another program this is a folder icon that has a zip on it.

Within that zip file are most of the other files you list. I'm not sure
what you mean by the Ancestry logo one. It may be that you have
something that associates a gedcom file with Ancestry and you have a
gedcom in that same folder? I'm not familiar with the apps available for
Ancestry. But it wouldn't be included in the Legacy data backup. Or did
you mean the Legacy logo? If so that's your main family file -

You do not use the files within the Legacy data backup zip directly. You
go to Legacy and use File - Restore File when/if you need to use a data
If you open files from within the backup zip you create a mess with the
file going into a temp folder. If you extract the files using Windows
File Explorer or another program you are creating copies of your file
that have the same name but are in different folders, that most likely
will confuse you later. You use File - Restore File either overwriting
your current file of that name OR renaming the file during the restore
