Move .DAT files out of Documents and into AppData

QWin clutters my Documents\Quicken folder with SyncLog.dat and OFXLOG.dat files.
I suggest placing these files in %APPDATA%\Quicken\Log with the other log files. My automatic backup process backs up my Documents folder but these .DAT files aren't worthy of backup.

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Quicken\Log might the more appropriate place to put them.

    These are in fact the "scrambled" form of the Sync and OFX log files, and there is one of each per data file.  So these like the data file more belong to the user than they do to the "whole system".

    LOL. You should check to see where %APPDATA%\Quicken\Log really is.

    Oops!  For some reason I was thinking %APPDATA% was %ALLUSERSPROFILE%.
