I am the new manager of a condo syndicate. The former manager let me an old computer Acer (form year 2000) on which runs a Quicken Base version 2001. All the historic financial data of the condo are there.
I want to run the last version of Quicken for Windows 11, on obviously a new computer Asus.
Are there any restrictions or twists to transfert a backup of the data. Any advices?

    You will need to convert it through a couple versions.

    If your Quicken was before 2010 you should have several files making up the data.  The main data file ends in .QDF.  All Quicken versions prior to QW2010 store your data in a series of files all sharing the same filename but with different extensions like  - .QDF .IDX, .QEL, .QPH  and all 4 of those files were rolled into a single-file .QDF starting in 2010.
