Under Advanced Options, is creating a copy or template or creating a year end archive better?
I am a Quicken user for more than 10 years. All of that data has not been archived and is still sitting on my hard drive "C". I would like to trim the file by moving all but 2 years of data to an archive file on an external drive and continue using the original existing files, account balances, categories, goals and financial downloading without having to start all over again by creating a new template. In other words, my vision would be to trim the Quicken file by archiving all but 2 years of data on an external drive, delete those 8 years of data from my computer hard drive "C" (that is really full) and continue using the remaining 2 years (2020 and 2021) as if the entire 10 years are still on hard drive "C". I am trying to avoid populating a new template (starting all over again). Can this be done? If so, how? Does the Quicken Advanced Options for copying and archiving automatically provide a solution for this issue?
