Quicken Data Files

    I believe that by default the data files will be located probably in your Quicken install directory whether you chose the default or created your own. Possibly it will be a sub-directory under that location. I can't remember because I have never taken the default. But there is a much better way than the 'standard' Windows way, as I will explain:…
    Wrong on default data file location.
    Quicken creates a folder named Quicken under Documents and is no where near the program and installation files.  Automatic backups are in a folder under that named BACKUP.
    Properly made manual backups should be to some media not permanently attached to or in your local computer for data safety.  Fires, tornadoes, hurricanes and floods are all possibilities. 
    Plan for the worst, hope for the best.
