Cloud attachments

How do I disable cloud attachments for all accounts? I do not want my attachments stored in the cloud. I just noticed some of my newer accounts are uploading attachments to the cloud and there seems to be no way to disable it.

    If you are syncing your accounts to Mobile/Web (Quicken cloud account) you can't prevent the attachments from being synced too.  Note that currently only the image attachments are synced.
    (I'm always using the latest Quicken Windows Premier subscription version)

    @cebarnes77 I'm with you. I do *not* use Mobile/Web and it is disabled in my desktop Quicken preferences. But everytime I add an attachment, it gives me the icon of uploading to the cloud. This is my information and I should have control over it. At the very least, give me a way to manage my cloud documents so I can go to and delete them.

    Here's a workaround for deleting attachments, I can find no way to prevent them from being uploaded. You can, on a transaction by transaction basis, delete them from the cloud.
    1) Select the attachment in your transaction that you want to remove from the cloud.
    2) Click on the "Cloud" icon in the lower left of the screen. It will give you an option to "Delete".
    3) Select this "Delete" option
    4) It will give you 2 other options, "Delete from cloud & desktop" and "Delete from cloud only" Click on"Delete from cloud only".
    5) You'll get a confirmation question, reply "Yes"
    6) You'll get a confirmation message that the file has been removed from the cloud.
    Screenshots are attached.

    Hello @TulsaVic

    Thank you for the response and the question.

    The Quicken Cloud facilitates downloads through Express Web Connect, the use of Online Services such as eBills/Online Billers, Investment Quote Updates, Credit Score Updates, and more.

    While you can choose to not sync the data for use with the mobile or web app if you are using any of the above services Quicken will still sync to the Quicken Cloud to facilitate these services.

    To learn more about the Quicken Cloud, please take a moment to review the information available here.

    If you would like to submit a feature request or a change to the sync process, I would take a moment to review the steps and information available here

    Thank you,

    -Quicken Tyka

    If you do not want any attachments going to the cloud, the solution is a bit strange and not intuitive.
    1. Click Edit->Preferences.
    2. Click Mobile & Web.
    3. Move Sync button to right so its ON (it will turn blue). (This is where its strange)
    4. It lists the number of accounts. Click on that area. Enter your vault password if applicable.
    5. Now you will see the accounts you have that are using Express Web Connect.
    6. Deselect all that you do not want sending attachments to the cloud. This will not effect transactional downloads.
    7. Move the Sync button back over to left (Off).

    I am using Quicken Premier subscription version 33.22 Good luck.
