How to identify Qkn backup file when updating?

Is there a specific identifier for the Qdata backup file that Quicken does before it does an update. (Can I look at my Qdata backup files and choose which one is the backup Quicken automatically created before an update?)

    When we update Quicken, Quicken saves a backup in the automatic backup folder with the current release and date before applying the update.  For example: QData-R-36.23-2021-10-31.QDF-backup

    Does this still apply when Quicken does the auto backup before it installs a program update?

    Yes. That is when this applies.
