My Macbook Died I can't find my backup

b43bobbyb Member
My Macbook pro died and I can't find where the QDATA_ backup file thing is. I have two dropbox accounts, 1 google drive and an Icloud. My iphone and ipad are currently operating but I want to use Quicken on my wife's computer and I don't know where to find the data file. Sincerly Mr Frustrated

    What version of QMac are you using? For the current product, you are looking for a file with extension .quickenbackup

    The default location is User > Library > Application Support > Quicken > Backups. Click the Go menu in Finder with Option key held down to access your user Library folder.

    Unless you set Quicken to backup to one of those locations, you won't magically find the files there unfortunately. I don't imagine you had a Time Machine backup as well, did you?

    The Quicken backup files are located wherever you told Quicken to create them, or when you told Dropbox, Google, etc - to copy certain files to the cloud ….
