You are unclear as to whether you want to overwrite when backing up or restoring.
I think most of your problem is that you are not sorting the register correctly
That is why i said to click on the bar above the columns in the register right where it has the actual word DATE
then they will sort on date.
If you use the method where you use copy and open rather then backup and restore you will not need to overwrite anything
you can do the copy directly to a flash drive
and then copy the file to my documents
and then open it from there.
If this is not making sense to you lets start over completely
do you have quicken running on one computer where you are happy with the way it is running?
on that computer
file / save a copy as browse to your flash drive and give it the name quicken1.qdf
plug the flash drive into the other computer
on this second computer that now has the flash drive in it
open my computer and browse to the flash drive
right click on the quicken1.qdf file and select copy
open my documents
right click on a blank area and select paste
go to file / open
browse to my documents
open the file quicken1
It should be exactly the way it was on the first computer.
If the register is not sorting properly you can click account actions on the top right
select sort select by date
