Recovering files using Quicken 2009.

vkm Unconfirmed, Member
I had prepared my accounts using the 2009 version of Quicken. I am now unable to open the files and have misplaced the CD of the program. Need a copy of the 2009 version of Quicken or instructions on how to recover the data.

    If your version of Q 2009 was the Deluxe Edition, you can download and install a free copy of Q 2013 Deluxe from this link:

    Using Q 2013 you should be able to open and process your Q 2009 data files, provided that "unable to open" means something other than "your data files have been damaged beyond repair".
    Do note that Q 2009 stored your data in a set of separate data files with the same name but different file types. You need all of these files, not just your xxx.QDF file!
    When converted to Q 2013, all these individual files will have been combined into one file, xxx.QDF

    @vkm - Do you have a back-up of your Q 2009 files from just before the last time you opened and saved them?  If you are not able to open your Q 2009 data files because they "have been damaged beyond repair" then perhaps that back up might not be corrupted and you will be able to open it.
