    Sherlock, I did find some backups which might help but I am a little afraid to click on it because when I did that the last time that is what wiped out 2 years of data.

    The default folder for backups is ...Documents/Quicken/Backup. The system generated backups are as frequent as has been set under preferences. Manual backups should have been performed to a flash drive, cloud or NAS.
    If that does not turn up more recent backups, you can type qdf-backup in the Windows search bar.

    You can also use a Window's search for all files ending in .QDF-backup.  And then pick the one with the most recent date.

    The most recent backup should be the backup with the most recent modification date: select File > Find Quicken Files...

    If you're opening a data file backup, you may choose Create a copy.
