    Hi @TJ102 ,

    Via Manual Backups to your other computer on the same Domain or Workgroup, like VerizonTJ.

    \\LIVINGROOM-10\MyDocuments\Quicken 2021 Data\BACKUP\Test Backup.QDF-backup.

    or use OneDrive.

    Yes, it kind of does. That FAQ suggests doing backup/move/restore, which we now know will run out of datasets if used routinely.
    Not sure why there's an avatar of a deleted user in the OP of this thread.

    NotACPA, you answered a question with a question. Maybe Rocket can explain it better, it's actually a pretty big problem.
