Restore after complete MAC crash

Peggy23 Member
My MacBook completely crashed requiring Apple to completely reset it. My data was backed up to a cloud backup service though. What are the correct steps to take to reinstall and restore my data to Quicken. Thanks.

    You will need to re-install your Quicken software, if it was lost in the process, and retrieve your Quicken data file.

    The software installer can be downloaded by logging into your account at

    The data file is a file that ends with ".quicken" (or alternatively, a backup file ending in ".quickenbackup"). The location of the files can vary. Quicken's default location for your data file is:
      Macintosh HD > Users > [your user name] > Library > Application Support > Quicken > Documents
    and the default for back files is:
      Macintosh HD > Users > [your user name] > Library > Application Support > Quicken > Backuos > Automatic Backups
