When I open Quicken on my Mac, instead of showing account names and entries related to normal transactions, it displays a "sanitized data file" How do I get back to the usual view?

    Somebody chose Help:Sanitize File and allowed it to created a sanitized file that provides anonymity should you need to send the file to Quicken Support for troubleshooting. It is a copy of your original file.

    If you choose File:Open Recent, you should be able to locate/open your unsanitized file.

    (Quicken Version 6.5.0) - The database file for me was sanitized after Quicken update. Had to restore an earlier version and database. Now concerned about future database corruption with version updates.

    I just updated my Quicken for Mac to Version 6.5.1 (Build 605.42638.100) and a Sanitized_Data_File was automatically created. Why is Quicken doing this?
