Can't backup anymore on my Windows computer.

It says "unable to open source file". I don't know what that means.

    That normally means your data file is being backed up by a program like Dropbox or Microsoft One Drive (newer computer sometimes set up by default)

    You can pause them and do backup.

    Quicken suggests data file should be in default Documents/Quicken to avoid these kind of problems and possible corruption.

    If above us not the case, anti virus can sometimes cause that too

    First - I don't know how to "pause" Dropbox or One Drive. I tried to back up to my computer's Documents/Quicken file and still got the same message: "Unable to Open Source File"
