Occasionally One or More Reminders Disappear

I have experienced times when a Reminder just disappears. I have ignored in the past as some reminders were old and they were being linked to new online billers. So they got recreated and we moved on. However, in the last month, a reminder for Mutual of Omaha (AP) disappeared and could not be found. It was discovered in reviewing transactions in our bank account that did not exist in the corresponding Quicken register. This monthly reminder was not associated with an online biller - the (AP) indicates to me that this is an AutoPay by the Biller and does not have an online Biller and neither Check Pay or Quick Pay will be used. It has been recreated for the future but what causes a reminder to disappear without errors or warning.

    Thank you for the reply. I did do a Validate & Repair on 6/10/2020 for another problem. There are 2 messages that Quicken removed 2 damaged reminders but I have no idea which ones or why they were damaged. The Reminder in question was just created in January of this year. At this point, guess I'll just have to monitor for future occurrences.
