    Back when I was traveling all of the time on business, I just backed up my home computer to a USB drive and then Restored from the USB drive to my laptop ... reversing the process when i got back home.
    Much easier than fooling around with DropBox.

    What file?  Your Quicken data file or a transaction import file?

    My backup file so I can keep two computers up to date. When I look on Drop box, I am getting the "need to be synchronized (circling arrows) symbol

    That sounds like a problem with Dropbox, and they would have to help you with that.

    I do that, too. Dropbox just seemed easier.
