Renaming my back up file
edited June 2022 in File Conversion and Backup (Windows)
I have saved a monthly Quicken file (xxxx.QDF) offline for the last 10 years. In May 2021, Quicken's program's changed. The back-up command would allow me to create a new file name (ie - a new QDF file), ask the new name, where to save the file name, then ask if I wanted to open the new file going forward. This feature appears to be no longer available. I now have to "mess around" to accomplish the same task - almost. How can I rename my old .QDF file to a newly named .QDF file? Is that done thru Quicken OR just Windows file "Rename" convention?
What version do you have? The backup file names now end in .qdf-backup.0
The backup menus and such have recently changed, but as far as I see the manual backup still allows you to change the file name if you want.

I want to save June 30 as a back up, and then, begin a new Quicken file titled July which carries existing June records into July. The process repeats itself for each subsequent month. My question is how do I rename a Quicken file?
I am using Quicken Version R34.16 for Windows 10 Version 220.127.116.11

Prior to R34.13, we were able to select File > Save a copy as.... Now, the equivalent functionality requires exiting Quicken, copying the old Quicken File to a new Quicken File, and opening the new Quicken File.
