Archiving-Year End Option - Error Message - File not copied

When I tried to archive and create a new file with records from a specific date (i.e. I only want records beginning with xx/xx/xx date option), I receive an error message stating "file not copied". No other information is provided as to why it was not copied. So, I cannot "delete" old records using the archive process.

Any ideas?

    I'd do a Validate (File->File Operations>Validate) and a super validate (same thing, but hold down the left CTRL+SHIFT).

    Thanks - I read the article - very interesting thoughts. I too prefer NOT to create separate files for historical data but I am being told by Quicken support that I need to reduce the size of my file. I too have data in one file dating back to the 1990s! I am willing to split the file if absolutely necessary so I think Quicken should work on improving the performance of this database structured program and file rather than force people to split the file. The beauty of Quicken is that we can manage our entire profile in one place.
