Quicken Data: Saving vs. Backups

Monday, February 28th, 2011

The other day I spoke with a person who was having an issue with Quicken.  She had been using Quicken and computers for quite a while.

Before we proceeded, I asked her the when was the last time she did a backup.  Her response was,” just a few minutes ago as I just pressed the save button.”  When I explored this further, it became apparent she never did a backup, and she has a lot of financial data going back for many years on her computer.

I explained to her how she could backup her Quicken data and suggested she purchase some USB flash drives.  As Quicken doesn’t take up a lot of space, almost any current USB flash drive would work fine for her needs.
