    @radiorab  I suspect it has to do with how the thumb drive is formatted. Many thumb drives are formatted for FAT-32 (an older DOS/Windows format). You can re-format the thumb drive, but what happens if you back up Quicken to your desktop, and then copy the file to the thumb drive?  (Then delete the copy on your desktop, and copy the file from the thumb drive back to your Mac desktop, to make sure it displays as a Quicken file.)
