    If you launch Quicken, before you start from scratch, take a look at menu File > Open Recent. Your file should be listed there as long as the prefs file wasn't also removed.

    If that doesn't work, the default location for your data file is (username) > Library > Application Support > Quicken > Documents. Hold down the Option key while clicking the Go menu in Finder to get to your Library folder.
