Recently bought a new MacBook Pro and restored all my files from time machine. However am having problems locating my data file with all saved transactions.  Can someone help?  I have Quicken Deluxe 2018 for Mac.

    Hello Victor, appreciate your question.

    For this issue, I would recommend calling Quicken Phone Support so that one of our Mac technical representatives can look into this issue and get things going for you.

    Hope this helps.

    Respectfully,

    Victor,

    Quicken, by default, stores your data file at

    ~/Library/Application Support/Quicken/Documents

    where ~ indicates your user directory on the Mac.

    The user Library folder is hidden by default in macOS. To access it, in the Finder, hold down the Shift key and click the Go menu. With the Shift key held down, you should see the Library item in the Go menu. Select that, and the user Library folder will open in the Finder.

    Once you are in the Library folder, double click the Application Support folder, then the Quicken folder and finally the Documents folder within. You should see your Quicken data file there (ending in the extension ".quicken"). Double click to open the file in Quicken. 

    After doing this once, Quicken should open this file automatically when you launch Quicken and the file should appear in the menu File > Open Recent.

    Let me know if this works for you.
