I want to revert back to Quicken 2000 from Quicken 2013 on my Win 7 laptop. Is this possible.

I recently converted my Quicken 2000 to Quicken 2004 and then to Quicken 2013 on my Win 7 laptop in preparation to transferring these files to my Quicken account on my Win 10 laptop. However, my Win 10 hard drive crashed this AM (Sun, 5/17/20 around 5:30 AM) and after converting the Quicken 2000 files up to Quicken 2013, I find that I don't like the look or feel of this version (and I suspect that Quicken 2020 is basically the same), so I would like to revert back to my Quicken 2000 program. Is it possible to do this?

    As long as you saved your Manual Backups from Quicken 2000, you can go back.

    And you still have the original Installer from Quicken 2000?

    You can download the Release R4 Deluxe from:  http://www.quicknperlwiz.com/quickenpatches.html

    I went from 2004 to 2013.  You should get used to it.  I did and now I really like 2013.  In fact I'm staying on 2013.  Give it a chance.

    By the way, All Quicken versions prior to QW2010 store your data in a series of files all sharing the same filename but with different extensions like  - .QDF .IDX, .QEL, .QPH  and all 4 of those files were rolled into a single-file .QDF starting in 2010. 

    I'm staying on Quicken 2013 Premier for Windows.

    Look for folders named Qxxfiles, where the xx is the two digit year of the previous version when an upgrade is made.
    If you find one with "00", that would be the data files as they were when you did the upgrade.
