    Thank you, Greg. It worked. :) Seems like the option to delete and edit backup paths should be a feature in the backup window though instead of this work around.
  • Hello shafted,

    Thank you for bringing this suggestion to the attention of the community.

    I went ahead and turned this discussion into an Idea thread so that other users are able to vote on it. Our developer's review Idea threads to get an idea of what people would like Quicken to offer.

    Thank you,

    Quicken Natalie

    I have several backup paths which I no longer use, but I cannot figure out a way to delete them. I know this is not earth-shattering, but it's driving me nuts. I found a discussion on this topic, and apparently someone has figured a workaround, but I cannot seem to figure out how to see what was written.

    And why, in the Name of All That's Holy, has Quicken not simply6 put an "Edit" feature in this section of the program?

    Use your favorite text editor (not word processor) to hand-edit the file
    Look for the header [RecentBackupPaths].
