Is there a product compatible with Quicken H&B 2000 backup that I can use?

I cannot find the disc for my ancient Quicken H&B 2000 and both the laptops I have it on crashed at the same time. I am panicked as I pay my bills with Quicken and do not even know what’s due. I have the info backed up. I need either another disc or to know if there is a product that this back up info will dL onto. ASAP please.

    Be forewarned, that the QW2013 Deluxe can not do any of the business features of your 2000 H&B and that if you do find your 2000 H&B disks and re-install it, you will not be able to open the file that has been opened by QW2013 and you will need to revert to your 2000 H&B backup.

    Given that this such an old unsupported version of Quicken, I take it that you don't actually pay bills in Quicken, Quicken just helps you keep up with your bills.  In fact most likely you are manually entering those transactions, give that downloading of transactions wouldn't be available with the possible exception of importing transactions in QIF format.

    Are we missing something here?

  • No, that is correct. But I have a system that I cannot access, and therefore cannot pay bills because I have no idea what’s due.
  • So Quicken Del 13 will accept the backup information that I have from my old program but does not do the business side, which is fine. If I use it, though, the back up for 13 would not dL to 2000 if I find the disc. Correct?

    Yes, but see this article, you will also need QW2004:
