How do I save a copy of my quicken file to my free agent drive?

When I try to save a copy it also wants to save a back up. I just want to save a copy to my exterior drive.

    For unknown reasons, QWin R34 has eliminated the ability to do a just-plain-file-copy. Gone are File > File Operations > Copy and File > Save a Copy As.
    You could do File > Show this file on my computer. After closing Quicken, use that folder window to copy the QDF file to your chosen destination.

    You could also just do the backup to there, and know that if you can just change the .QDF-Backup to .QDF.  There isn't any difference between the two, Quicken just uses the different type to know that when you open a .QDF-Backup it is to prompt you for when to copy the data file before opening it.  And with a .QDF it just opens it in place.
