Where is the "Latest Download" date stored?

Occasionally I need to move my data file from one computer to another. I do so carefully with back ups in case anything goes wrong but have not had any difficulty doing so. When I do this, however, the "Latest Download " date does not see to be included in the data file. So, for example, if I move from Computer A to Computer B and during the time I'm using B I download updates to various accounts. Then when I move back to Computer A the latest update dates do not reflect any updates done on Computer B. The transactions I have downloaded using B are all present but the latest update date still reflects the last time Computer A was used to do an update. I have poked around trying to figure out where that information is stored so that when I move to a different computer I can move that file too. Does anyone happen to know?

    Hi @rrjeanes,

    I haven't taken a look at this lately, but my personal notes indicate that the last Download Date information is in a file called the "runtime.dat" file.  That is located in the hidden "ProgramData/Quicken/Inet" folder.

    And just in case you want to clear the Download Date, exit Quicken and remove/rename the runtime.dat file Quicken maintains in a Quicken file specific folder in the hidden ProgramData\Quicken\Inet folder.

    Thanks for your answers. When I moved the runtime.dat file along with the Quicken Data file, I do indeed move the "Latest Download" dates along with the other information. Thanks a lot for that information Frankx.
