Quicken! When is this issue going to be resolved!

I was working in Quicken last evening, noticed some entries did not post as reconciled, closed out of Quicken and when I tried to get back on the PASSWORD screen came up, never needed to use that before, and like everyone else (I've been reading other posts) cannot access my data file. This is a QUICKEN issue, why do we have to spend time trying to get through to a person. Your program is corrupted if we are ALL having the same issue. PLEASE FIX IT, we pay for your support, so support us PLEASE! Thank you.

    What is the full path to the folder that contains your Quicken data file on the hard drive? Are you using OneDrive, Dropbox or Google Backup?

    Using a Quicken file in a folder being actively maintained by OneDrive may cause the Quicken file to become corrupted.  I suggest you attempt to locate a good Quicken file backup.

    I just ran into the same issue - never had a data file password before. And no, my data file is not on OneDrive, just a hard drive file.

    Quicken ID box 
     If you haven't already, I suggest you reset the Quicken ID associated with the data file. 
    1. Select Edit > Preferences...
    2. Select Quicken ID & Cloud Accounts
    3. Select Sign in as a different user
    4. Enter yes 
    5. Select Sign Out
    6. Sign in with the original Quicken ID.
    To be able to select Edit > Preferences..., you may need to close the Sign In window multiple times but eventually Quicken should allow you to proceed.

    Thank you for trying to help. Everything I try still takes me back to the Sign in Window and there is no X on the screen to close out the box. Or it takes me to a screen to download Quicken and sign in, but that doesn't work either. Hopefully I can get to talk to someone on the phone tomorrow at Quicken. Thanks again.
