Quicken always says my password is incorrect when I password protect a new file.

I've been around this problem a dozen times today. Every time I give my data file a password, Quicken says it is incorrect when I try to reopen the file. I keep doing it over and over, but always the same result. Does this have anything to do with Dropbox??

    Hi @JBird79

    If your Quicken datafile is located in Dropbox - the answer is likely Yes.  Your datafile needs to be located on one of your physical drives - Quicken suggests you use your C: drive, but any location on a hard drive works well and protects against problems caused by Quicken's frequent file interactions.
