the data file is a separate entity from the program files.

you can find it ( if you dont know where it is already )

In the Finder: you can search for them by doing the following:

In the Finder, open a new Search window by selecting File > Find (or pressing Command-F).

  1. Click on Search This Mac
  2. Select search by "Kind is Other", then type "Quicken Data File".

you should copy this file to a flash drive or the desktop just for extra safety. But it should not be affected anyway.

then open the applications folder and drag the quicken program to the trash bin

then re install the quicken program

once it is re installed clicking on the data file that you saved should open it in the re installed quicken.
