Moving Quicken (2005 Basic) data files to D: data HD (vs C: OS SSD)

I moved my My Documents from the C: SSD drive to my new computer's voluminous D: data Hard disk drive.

I discovered that the quicken files that were moved could not be opened.

When I tried to open them I got the following error:
"Verify that this is a valid Quicken data file. Check the following:

Make sure the file is not marked read-only. In Windows Explorer, right-click the file names(s) and then choose Properties from the shortcut menu.

if the file is on a 3.5-inch disk, restore it to your computer's hard disk before opening it. Choose File menu . Restore Backup File.

For assistance, contact Customer Support. Choose Help menu > Product and Customer Support."

Anyway, I moved the D: directory back to the C: location and it worked fine. I suspecting there is some link pointers that aren't working correctly.

I tried various restore operations from the contents on the D: drive, but it never worked. Might be missing something there.

I'd prefer to keep all the data on the D: drive if possible Any ideas on how to make it work?
