Basic File Info
Quicken H&B 2016 R 8(188.8.131.52). Quicken apparently does automatic backups that I can see in Windows Explorer (..QBackup\BACKUP). It also will backup on command which I place in QBackup. Four recent files appear in the list at the bottom of the file menu. Clicking on one of the four recent files simply opens the file. Manually opening or restoring any of the automatic or manual backups presents ambiguous queries that I cannot answer. Unfortunately, due to some troubleshooting by Quicken Support Chat, one of my files does not appear in the recent files. Also, the recent files does not seem to reflect the name given for the most recent backup. I'm confused by the relationship between these files and the recent file list and do not know how to proceed even though I've been using Quicken intensively for many years. Note that this arises because I have one set of personal accounts and another for a non-profit for which I am treasurer. I don't want a quick answer but a complete description of Quicken's file management.
