The Quicken Cloud stores and transmits your information between Quicken Desktop, Quicken Mobile, and Quicken on the Web. A Quicken Cloud account is automatically created when you create a Quicken ID, but you do not have to use it.
Also, the Quicken Cloud is not a backup; you can't restore Quicken data from the Quicken Cloud, and you can't access the Quicken Cloud from anywhere except the desktop and mobile Quicken products. If you're looking for a cloud backup service for Quicken, please see this information about Dropbox and Quicken.

What happened? The files are simply gone from my laptop and also from my One Drive account online. Some older backups in a different folder are still here. The missing files are not in recycle bin.
