Home Quicken for Windows Download, Add/Update Accounts (Windows)

If I start over, will my accounts redownload tractions?

My financial situation and account have changed so I need to start over. I know from other threads I can change name of the old file to save it and create a new file to start from beginning. However, if I do that will my account redownload transactions that were downloaded for the old file? I need to do that to start from January this year. My concern is there is a built in fail safe that prevents that in order to prevent duplicate downloads. In my case I want to start all over from scratch. Can someone confirm the real situation?

    The imported transaction FITID's are maintained by account register in a data file.

    When we create a new account register in a data file, Quicken will present all of the imported transactions.

    Note:  The financial institution determines the date range of the transactions available for import.  If you haven't already, you may want to review: https://community.quicken.com/discussion/7160091/faq-download-old-transactions
