My Quicken DB gets corrupted frequently. I constantly have to validate the file and re-enter lost data. I created a new DB 2 years ago and still have the problem. It get's corrupt nearly every time I use it. I've run chkdsk on my PC and the drive checks out fine. I called Quicken Support and was told that need to run more backups, I need to install updates correctly (btw, I just click OK to install the update when prompted while starting Quicken), I need to re-create the DB, etc. Nothing to help determine why the data is being corrupted. I asked how much data I could keep in the DB, and was just given the standard answer "It depends". Apparently the Quicken DB isn't robust enough to handle a couple of years worth of data. The size of my DB is currently 28 MB. Seems like it should be able to handle data files much larger than that. Has anybody else experienced these problems and found a way to fix it? Right now the solution that I'm looking at is to drop Quicken. My experience with Tech Support was HORRIBLE!!!
