Can't change date stamp in automatic backups

The date stamp in my backup file name is now always the same, stuck on 2020-06-05. No problem with the manual backups.

    I omitted saying "automatic" backup file name in my original post.

    Hi @""Robert Keesecker"  ,

    Check your Computer Date and check your BIOS Battery as well. And also make sure that Quicken does not remain in memory.

    Does the filename shown in the upper left corner banner have a date in it?
    If so, the date is part of the base filename, and Quicken is not adding a date to the file's name.
    Please write back with exactly in in the upper left corner and what is the name of the backup files that are being created?
