Yes, I'm still using it. I still like it.

I have transferred my Data files onto Online storage Onedrive.

So then I can access the Data files from both my PC and Laptop which both have the Program installed.

Are there any issues with doing this please?

Hi Jane, One Drive is fine to use for your main data file but you should still create a backup copy on different media. An example would be an external Hard Drive, however be aware that Ransomware encrypts files that it can access so that if you permanently have your backup drive attached it will be encrypted as well. 

We recommend that clients have at least 3 copies of data to be safe, your main version, an onsite backup and another held offsite somewhere else. Also not all Cloud Storage is safe. One Drive is one of the better offerings but could still be compromised.

I did this myself but i found that it was too slow because it had a long way to go into cyberspace to make each transaction, it may have been my slow internet as well. If it works for you well and good.
Make sure you are always looking at the correct data file.

I use Quicken 2004 on Google drive. Works a treat
