Backing up using Dropbox; Error Open Source code. Can’t backup now.

I just set up Dropbox for my backup. Initial set up worked great. Tried to backup last night and it doesn’t work. I changed the location to Dropbox folder, but it keeps changing back to the old location and the error says Source Code something. Please help. I’m so afraid everything is going to blow up.

    Do not open the data file in a folder actively maintained by Dropbox.

    @GeoffG , you can backup directly to a Dropbox folder from Quicken. As @thecreator posted, your active Quicken data file should NOT be in a Dropbox folder.
