Can I restore Quicken data to new hard drive from the Quicken mobile app?

If I sync a new download of the Quicken desktop software to my mobile app, will I lose what is on the mobile app?

    I lost my quicken data and back up files due to a hard drive crash. The mobile app still has all of the transactions. Can I use it to restore my desktop version?

    Sorry, but no.  The data held in the Q Cloud, for use by the Mobile App, isn't a complete and sufficient copy of your Q data.
    I hope that you've got backups that you stored on a device that wasn't your hard drive.  Otherwise, you'll probably need to start over from 1/1/21.
