    I'm guessing that you were trying to do a search of the forum and somehow saved this as a question which it definitely isn't.

    Please start again and provide a complete description of your problem/question, the version of Quicken (US or Cdn) you are using and the OS of your computer.

    With the added information, someone just might be able to help you.

    I came across this entry when I was searching in "getsatisfaction"   I am interested in syncing a Quicken file from my desktop to a laptop.  I am using Quicken Deluxe 2018 R12.15 on both. Windows 10.  Is there a way to sync, because I'm tired of  backing up and restoring to each device?

    No, there is no way to sync a Quicken data file between 2 computers. The easiest way is to backup/restore to a cloud drive.

    You could also just move a copy of the data file itself rather than doing a backup/restore to do the move.  Still do backups for safe keeping.

    You will need to decide which data file is the most up-to-date and use that one going forward.  The best way to maintain two or more Quicken access points is to backup from the main and restore to the secondary.  Only update the main and use the secondary for "read-only" access.  Any other way and you will end up again out of sync.
