    OneDrive/Quicken/DATA for data file
    OneDrive/Quicken/BACKUP for backups

    I would suggest C:\Users\<Username>\Documents\Quicken for data files and using OneDrive for backups.

    Services such as OneDrive or Google Drive can be used as a location to store backups of your Quicken data files.  We don't recommend storing your active data files, or installing Quicken, on these drives.  If you restore a backup that is located in your cloud drive, make certain the restored file is saved locally on your hard drive before using the file.

    Can I share my Quicken file between multiple computers using Dropbox?

    Just move the Quicken folder to the desired location and then double click on the data file to open it. Quicken will remember the location. When you make a manual backup, browse to the location and Quicken will remember that.
