Where is a New Quicken file picking up historical net worth data from?

Currently running quicken for windows, R28.18 Build I had to start over and create a new quicken data file. Old file got corrupt during validate. Somehow I see some historical data going back to 2010, when all the other data only goes back to Aug. 2020. Any ideas.

    What type of data is showing 2010?  If you want some help, you need to provide lots more information and PLEASE do not make someone play twenty questions getting that info.

    Hi @prateek,

    Thanks for taking the time to post to our community.

    How did you create this new File? Did you go up to File > New Quicken File? Or did you create a Copy of the previous File?

    If you created a new File, there should be no data or information from the previous File you were managing. Once the new File is created, you are prompted to add your accounts. Your accounts are already present if you created a copy.

    Responding with this additional information will give us better insight with the issue and the next steps to take. Look forward to hearing from you.

    I created New Quicken File. Old one data got corrupt, although it was open when I created New Quicken File

    Splasher - There is no data in any of the accounts in the new file going back further than May 2020.

    Splasher - Thanks for the clue. Found one account with a transaction that was created all the way back to 2010 during the down load.
