Experience Working in Quicken 2020 with large files?
Our clients uses Quicken files on behalf of their financial management clients. We would like to connect with a consultant that has relevant experience with using using large Quicken files, benefits of using 'year-end' copy, managing files via a network, etc. Any referrals would be appreciated.

    How big do you consider "large"? My QDF file is 146 MB with a mixture of banking, credit card, and investing accounts, with transactions going back to 1999. I do not use attachments, which can make a file much larger.

    I would not recommend using the Year end copy or storing your working data file anywhere other than a local hard drive.

    First off, how about NOT posting the same question multiple times.  On some forums, you would have been banned as a spammer.

    Hello Splasher,
    Please be assured that I feel sufficiently shamed for my crime of 'posting twice' there is apparently no excuse for begin both new and un-sure. A friendly forum member might suggest deleting one and how to do that, or even pointed me to the clearly not yet understood relevant guideline.

    However, If the objective is to keep the forum as clean as possible of anyone with less experience, I don't think I could improve on your response.

    Twice in the same category is an "oops"/mouse stutter, three times in different categories is spamming.
