Issues when choosing backup file

Like most, I use multiple backup locations. I recently deleted one location and changed another on the remote drive but they will not delete from the backup dropdown box. The files have been completely deleted from my computer and remote HD but they still show up in the dropdown box. In the scheme of life, it's no big deal, but they bug me sitting there laughing at me every time I back up! Any help greatly appreciated. John 🏴‍☠️

    Edit the file %APPDATA%\Quicken\Config\QUSER.INI to remove unwanted BackupPaths.

    For reference to other users reading and trying this ...
    The advice should be:
    • Close Quicken.
    • While Quicken is closed use Notepad or any other ASCII text editor, not MS Word,
      to edit the file %APPDATA%\Quicken\Config\QUSER.INI to remove unwanted BackupPaths

      [RecentBackupPaths]
      BackupPath5=
      BackupPath4=I:\Quicken Backup\
      BackupPath3=E:\Quicken Backup\
      BackupPath2=J:\Quicken Backup\
      BackupPath1=H:\Quicken Backup\

      Do NOT delete any lines from this file!
      Just blank out the name portion after the '=' (equal sign).
