Can I retrieve data from Quicken Mobile?

My computer died unexpectedly (is it ever expected!). I did not realize that somehow my auto-backup location moved to the hard drive of the computer I was on. As a result, the only backup file I can find is two years old. Apparently, sync is no help. My question is this: I can see all my current data/transactions on quicken mobile. Short of hand-entering data, can it be moved in bulk? I tried chatting with quicken but was ghosted.

    Hello @sbev521,

    Thank you for contacting the Community with this question, I am sorry to hear that your computer gave out on you. 

    Unfortunately, there is no way to download your data file from the Mobile App or through Quicken on the web when using a Windows computer. 

    I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. 
    Please do not hesitate to reach out with any further questions or concerns.

    nope - its not all your data anyway... just a small subset of your selected Quicken Accounts -
    BTW - you might have to revisit your overall disk backup strategy .... 
    I make a backup of my /Docs /Photos to an external USB drive... and alternate between my two 2TB USB drives.

    If the only avenue I had available to restore my data was from Quicken on the web, I would look at copy/pasting from the web page into Excel, then use a CSV to QIF like @Chris_QPW has created to import back into Quicken.

    Without trying it, it's hard to say how much manipulation would be needed to get the Excel data formatted to use with the CSV to QIF.

    Was it the computer which died or did the hard disk crash, but the computer still works?
    If the computer died but the hard disk is still in working order, you can (have someone) remove it from the old computer, insert it into an empty USB hard drive case and then use it to copy all your documents, pictures, Quicken files, etc. to the new computer's hard disk.
