Exceeded maximum number of datasets?

Using Quicken 2017 for Windows. Received a message requiring me to log on as administrator and when I did, it automatically installed an update. When I restarted Quicken, I received a message that I had exceeded maximum number of datasets and that I could not create a new dataset or continue with current task. What does this mean and how do I get around this?

    It means that you've got too many files in the Q Cloud.  There's no such thing, in Q, as too many QDF files.
