Backup broken?

JMack436 Member ✭✭
I usually backup my Quicken data file to multiple locations.
It's bad enough that you guys added an additional step recently when you added "Additional Options" to the backup pop-up, which now requires an extra click...
But now, whenever I open the backup dialog box, only the last location, shown in the "Where would you like to put your backup copy?" dialog, allows me to check the box named "Add date to backup file name".
If I use the drop-down arrow to select another location, this option becomes greyed out, and won't allow me to add the date to any additional copies.
Please fix this...

    This bug has been confirmed internally and I have gone ahead and submitted a bug report for this to our Development and Product teams for further investigation and resolution.

    Unfortunately, we won't have an ETA on this. However, once a solution is created it will be made available as part of a future update release.

    In the meantime, we have also posted this Community Alert which you can refer to for any and all available information and updates on this topic.

    Concerning the extra step, if you just do a CTRL+B, it will take you directly to the backup popup, I never use the File menu pick.  Hopefully, the problem with the greyed out choices gets fixed soon.
