When I go to restore a backup file from a USB I follow the prompts but it does not restore despite saying it has. The backup file has a Rkn extension as opposed to the Qdb files my earlier versions used to create. Can anyone help please?

    Hi Michael do you mean "as opposed to the QDF files"????  Have you recently upgraded?  What version were you on and what version are you now on please?  And what version do you now have installed please?

    Regards, Robyn Kelly

    Michael,
    Make sure after you do a backup with .RKN extension that when you come to restoring it later that you are looking at the correct backup file, after you do a restore you will need to go and open the file form the menu bar, always check to file name as it came change from your original.

    Hi my name is Warren, I have a 2005 version of Quicken personal plus which I have just transferred from my old computer to the new one. Now I would like to restore everything from my backup USB to the program. When I click the restore button it takes me to a dialog box and asks for a file name, what do I put in there. How do I find the file name
