I have copied FileMaker Pro file for run another computer but some data have lost. Is there anyone has the same problem? I can not understand what's happen ...
What is the original computer hardware and what is the new one? What operating systems. What version of FileMaker? What are the file names. Did you go from FileMaker Server to FileMaker Client hosting or vice versa? Are there external remote container field storage? If so, are you only missing the container fields (if so, you just need to move the folder to be seen)? What are you missing? Whole files? Records? Or Just certain fields?
At first I would assume you did not copy everything or you what you copied was not a good copy. But there are a lot of other possibilities too. Let us know more and we'll help out.
From Windows 10 To Mac OS X High Sierra
Filename is HUTF.fmp12
There is no Server side only FileMaker Pro file standalone
Missing on some records that created on Windows 10
Is there any chance you copied it before you closed it? Or that the last time you opened it, it crashed? Those are some reasons new records might not have been saved back to the database. Have you run a Recover (pull down File => Recover) of the file to see if it finds problems or missing records?

One other comment is that Server hosted FileMaker databases are much more stable that FileMaker Pro hosted databases. If you use FMP and there is a crash in the user interface or other user interface actions, you can corrupt the hosted file. If you host the file on FileMaker Server and connect with FileMaker Pro, any crashes or problems on FileMaker Pro are very unlikely to effect the database. Additionally, FileMaker Server lets you make backups and other things without having to close the database.
Is there any chance your file was open when you did a virus scan, backup or disk optimization or indexing? Those are things that you need to avoid on an open FileMaker file. If you have virus scans or backups or indexing, make sure they skip over the live FileMaker files and only backup copies of the FMP12 file.
Hard to be sure, but this has happened, with previous Versions
Filemaker stops writing to disk, sometimes for days at a time
You close the file, and records are lost
It's been reported a few times, e.g: https://community.filemaker.com/message/53011
