I have a new computer. Carbonite files backed up and are here but there is no program to open them in. Is there any way to download quicken without buying a new program? I have no idea what version I had maybe 2003

    Did you not re-install your Q program onto the new computer?  It's ONLY the data that got backed up to Carbonite ... not the program files.
    And, for a program that old I'd doubt that it can be downloaded anymore.

    If you think you had a version older than 2013.  You should at least try to convert to the 2013 version since you don’t use any online services or download transactions now. Starting in 2014 they instituted an ID password to get into your own data. I’m staying on 2013. 


    You can download 2013 for free (I think it's the Deluxe version) using this how to convert article.  It’s under Converting from Quicken 2004-2009.

    And FYI - If your Quicken was before 2010 you should have several files making up the data.


    The main data file ends in .QDF.  All Quicken versions prior to QW2010 store your data in a series of files all sharing the same filename but with different extensions like  - .QDF .IDX, .QEL, .QPH  and all 4 of those files were rolled into a single-file .QDF starting in 2010.
