Add More Options to Automatic Back-ups in Quicken for Mac (22 Legacy Votes)

smayer97smayer97 SuperUser ✭✭✭✭✭
There are 4 improvements that can be made to the new Automated Back-up in Quicken for Mac:
  1. allow choosing the max number of back-ups (like in QM2007 and QWin)
  2. provide option to only reminder user to create manual back-up (like in QM2007 and QWin)
  3. only create a new back-up when there is an actual change to the data
  4. add an option with the following choices as follows: 
    - save at [most, least] 'X' times in 'Y' [hours, days]

    This way, you can put either a cap in a selected time period with the 'at most' option, or a timed trigger with the 'at least' option that always makes a back-up even if Quicken is left open for hours or days at a time, as many users are in the habit of doing. And this could work well with item 2 so it either does it automatically OR generates a reminder.

    These items have been partially implemented. 

    Item 2. and 3. were implemented in QM2017 v4.5.0 released April 27, 2017.
    Item 1. was implemented in QM2017 v4.6.0 released Sep 8, 2017.

    The only item left is #4, which will automatically backup even if Quicken is left open, based on the settings. This is to make sure Quicken always generates a certain number of backups even if you leave Quicken open.

    Please continue to add your VOTE at the top for this last item.
