    Hi, I would very much appreciate advice/help on the problem I'm
    encountering when starting Money (Version 12)

    Recently, when starting Money I find that it opens up with the wrong
    info - i.e. it displays my accounts as they were a few days ago.

    I am able to restore the correct details from my backup, which is made
    to my NAS drive. I can also restore from a backup file that Money
    seems to make to my C drive.

    I would also like to mmove Money from my C drive to my D drive, but am
    not sure how to do this.

    Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated

    Cheers

    Close Money, drag and drop the money file from C driver to wherever you want
    it on your D drive, then double click the file to open it from there.
    Thereafter, it will open correctly from your shortcut.

    Be sure that your Money and backup files are moved to a spot that
    you will have full privileges to, such as within the user's
    Documents folder. If they are in ProgramFiles, Vista or Windows 7
    will create an impermanent copy of the file for the user to use,
    unless the user explicitly right-clicks at launch and choose
    RunAsAdministrator that time.

    I would keep Money installed on the same drive as your OS. However
    to move the data files (*.mny and *.mbf), use the OS to move the
    files. Then open the files by double-clicking the new location, or
    browsing there with File->Open within Money.
