    This worked for me and is a combination of several tips I’ve read on this forum:

    1) Do a Quicken Backup (in case you have to restore this)
    2) Log into Capital One’s website, click on your profile picture, select Security from the dropdown list and under Linked Apps, discconnect Quicken.
    3) In Quicken, go to your Capital One account, click on the gear in the upper right, edit account details, Online Services tab, and Deactivate account.
    4) In this same screen, select General tab and (this is the important part), delete all information in the Financial Institution field and in the Account Number field
    5) Go back to Online Services tab, select Activate, type in Capital and select the option for Capital One Bank – New (at least this is the option that worked for me). Follow the steps to activate the account and link it to your existing Quicken account for Capital One. When I did this, the activity for the past two months finally downloaded.
