Can NOT move the data file on Quicken for Mac 2019

I have Quicken for Mac 2019 Deluxe 5.9.2 and I am trying to move the data file.

This is on a brand new MacBook Pro running Mojave 10.14.2.

In my old computer running El Capitan I had created an encrypted sparse image in HPFS format.  My data file and my backups were stored in that encrypted image.

I copied that image to my new computer.  Installed the new Quicken and it converted the data file to its new format.  Have used it for 3 days and all is OK, except that the data file and the backups are NOT stored in the encrypted sparse image file.

So, I go to File, Move To... and follow the path until I find the sparse image.

The name of the image is greyed out.

So, I can NOT move the data file.

I could try moving it from outside Quicken but don't know if that is OK.

Thanks to all.

Roberto

    Yes, it is perfectly OK to move your data file outside Quicken. BUT be sure to quit Quicken first before you do that.

    Also, if you are moving your main data file, Quicken will not know where you moved it to the first time. So you can either double-click the data file or you will have to select File > Open and navigate to the new location the first time. Then Quicken will remember that location.
