Default auto Backup Location


P

Phil

I went from Quicken 2004 to Quicken 2007. I created a new directory when
I installed it"quicken 2007" but it still auto backups to my Quicken
2004 directory. I would like to get rid of my Quicken 2004 directory.
How do I make Quicken "auto Backup to my Quicken 2007 directory?

Thanks
Phil

The auto backup always goes to the "BACKUP" folder in the folder
where the currently open Quicken data file resides.

That is not necessarily the folder where you installed Quicken.

Could I copy the backup folder into the directory then open the file
from there and delete the Quicken 2004 directory?

That's the opposite of what I would do. [And I recommend never
"opening" a backup file; once you do, it's no longer a true
backup.]

Move your current Quicken data fileset (QDATA.*, where QDATA is
the name of your Quicken data) to the folder where you want it
to be. The first time Quicken opens the fileset in that folder,
Quicken will create a new BACKUP folder and start doing its
automatic backups there.

[Depending on how many auto backups you have Quicken saving, you
will temporarily have auto backups in two BACKUP folders -
though you can "move" those files too, after Quicken creates the
new BACKUP folder - it's just not necessary ... the files in the
BACKUP folder in the Q2004 file are just as useful as the ones
in the new BACKUP folder, but will gradually become old and out
of date and can be deleted.]
