How to properly backup Quicken file to NAS
For years I have used the backup feature to backup a copy of my Quicken data file to may NAS. Several months ago I started getting a message when I start Quicken that says "Quicken has detected that you are accessing your data file through dropbox, ... or another remote device. " It goes on to say that they recommend not doing this. I wish I could just attach a screenshot here but I don't see an option for this. In any case, what is up with this message? Are you really not supposed to use the backup feature and point to to somewhere other than your local hard drive? What would be the point of a backup if it was still on your local drive? So I called Quicken customer support and they told me the same thing. You should not use the back up feature and point it to anywhere other than your local drive. I am confused. Can someone tell me the correct procedure to safely backup your Quicken data file to a NAS or other external location?
