Back Up DataAlthough Quicken makes a back up of your data file for you, it is always the best practice to make your own backup copy of data files before beginning any new program installation. Follow this procedure to make a copy of the data file before installing the new software.
- Either place the Quicken install CD into your CD drive, or if you downloaded Quicken, double click on the installation file to start installing the program. Read this FAQ if you can't find the install file on your computer.
- If you have an older version of Quicken on your computer, you'll see a warning that it will be uninstalled. Let Quicken uninstall the previous version. Your old data will be converted for use with the new version, and a copy of the old data file will be stored in this folder: Program Files/QUICKEN/DATA.
- Next, the install program shows you an overview of new features.
