I have received the above message for quite a while now when I try to copy my 2015 Quicken Home & Business file. I have been through many iterations of Quicken going back to 1997. When I validate the file I am getting the first set of messages below. When I try to copy the file I am getting the second set of message below. I want to move to 2018 Premier. Are these messages going to be a problem? Am I going to have to start from scratch? I have deleted personal information.

    This file is Toast.

    your Quicken data file from a Manual or Automatic Backup taken prior to the
    problem first occurring, if necessary going back to older backups until you
    find a file that does not exhibit these symptoms.

    It might also be a good idea if you performed a thorough check of your hard drive for file system errors (what used to be known as CHKDSK).

    Restoring from a backup is not an option. I back up every time I use Quicken and I don't know when this problem started, but it has been going on for a long time. I don't have a backup that far back. I'll perform the CHKDSK function, but mainly I just wanted to know if it would create a problem when I transition to 2018.
