Quicken Conversion

I'm have a problem converting a Quicken03 file in Money
04. The response is that I may not have enough memory or
disk space to creat the file. I'm operating with WinXP,
384MB memory and 15GB of available disk space. I stopped
or removed programs running in the background and have
been able to increase the avialable memory to 330. Still
same response. The Quicken file that I'm trying to convert
is 13MB. Another Quicken file that I was able to convert
without any problem was 9.1MB however, after the
conversion, the money file is 86MB in size. Is this normal.

Thanks in advance.

If you did not do so, I would do validate and super-validate from
Quicken first. Then you can try doing the conversion after selective
startup or clean boot.

Expect that Money file to get smaller after a few price downloads
etc. I know that seems counter-intuitive. Money compacts after it
sees the file has grown some amount. That first time it compacts
should shrink things. File->RepairMoneyFile->QuickFileRepair may
help it along.

First, in Quicken select FILE>COPY and let it make a copy of your file.
This routine will, among other things, defragment your file. The resulting
file may convert without having to use Validate, which can be risky.

and super-validate from
Quicken first.
Intuit does not recommend use of Supervalidate unless repeated validates
keep revealing errors in the file. Supervalidate, and in fact, even
Validate, can introduce errors by deleting data that it thinks is corrupted.
FILE>COPY is much less risky, and can sometimes correct errors.
