Hey! I'm Carter, I'm a CPA and would be glad to help you with this.

To load your backup files in Quicken:

  1. In Quicken, select File > Backup and Restore > Restore from Backup File....
  2. Select Restore from online backup, then click on Restore Backup.
  3. Select I am an existing customer, then click OK.
  4. Enter your Account ID and Password for the Online Backup service (this will be saved after your first sign in).
  5. Select the backup file you wish to restore and press OK.

    Note: A dialog lists the last 90 days of backups you have made of each Quicken data file that you are backing up online. The file with the most recent date and time stamp is the most recently backed up data file.

    • To close the confirmation message that Quicken displays when your files are restored, click OK.

    Hope that helps! Let me know if you need anything else, if not please leave a rating. Thanks!
