Having given up on USBank downloads, I do it manually. Now that doesn't work anymore.

Bank downloads have gradually deteriorated as banks have added multi-level security. For a very long time I've manually downloaded the data and then imported it. Now I'm getting an error that there is no internet connection (which is not true) and the bank cannot be verified. It's gotten to the point I will have to manually enter all transactions, like it was when Quicken was a new product.

    "Quicken is unable to verify the financial institution information for this download. Please try again later."

    I've also tried with a similar .QFX download from Wells Fargo. I get the same error messages and have to enter all transactions manually since the automatic downloads have stopped working and now file import stopped working.

    With US Bank (and I'm their customer also) which TYPE of download are you using?  You can view this at TOOLS, Account List.
    Express Web Connect is free ... but USB has ALWAYS had problems with their implementation of EWC.
    Direct Connect cost $3.95/month for ALL (not each) of your USB accounts ... and is very reliable.
    I made the switch years ago when I got fed up with USB's implementation of  EWC.

    For what it is worth, I don't think the financial institution is contacted when you import a QFX file, instead the "verification" is with the Quicken/Intuit server to verify that it is still supported.   After all you can have an account setup for Web Connect/QFX file and never have given your log in information.
