    Move you Quicken data file off the desktop and to a separate folder. C:\Users\<Username>\Documents\Quicken is the default. Check to make sure OneDrive is NOT backing up your Documents folder.

    Sounds like your Quicken data file is on your desktop.  If you have it there so that you can click on it to start Quicken, move the data file to a folder named Quicken under Documents and create a Desktop shortcut to the data file to get the same effect.
    The files will all be kept in the Quicken folder.
