Quicken file is 83MB, would it help to make it smaller.

I have been using quicken for over 25 years. By backup file is over 83MB. quicken is staring to run very slow. What is the best way to either delete transactions or have my backup file smaller?

    EDIT - updated the topic title from your username, to better reflect actual Q&A -
    The backup file is a copy of the Quicken Data File - or the QDF file - so we'll ignore the "backup" wording as per the discussion above

    I've been a Quicken user since 1993. I finally decided this year to start a fresh file and download from new. Best thing I ever did. Things work flawlessly now. I've spent a good 3-4 days doing reconciling and keeping only December 2019 transaction from previous statement. A bit painful, but well worth the improved performance as well as product working better. Had about 10 questions that were all answered by tech support fairly quickly. Tech support is great since Intuit sold this product off. Quicken Team, keep up the good work.
