    When trying to restore (or store) a Quicken data file on your computer, you need to be sure to specify the correct destination folder. Windows normally does not allow any folder to be used for storing data files, documents, images, etc.
    Program Files folders and other system folders are not permitted.

    After the file has been restored to a permissible folder you can run Quicken from a regular Windows User account without Admin privileges.
