    Hi, ranamaksa:

    I think you are asking two question:

    1) Yes, you can simply make a backup of the application for safekeeping.
    2) Yes, you can store your backups on external storage as well.

    Hello @ranamaska

    Thank you for reaching out to Quicken Community. To clarify you are able to save a backup using an external drive (USB drive or cloud-based storage) but ensure that you are keeping your active/main files on your local hard drive. 

    Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
