I have been using Quicken since 1994, so my qfiles are quite large. Since I have been tracking finances for so long this data is irreplaceable and would be very tragic if lost, so this is what I do. I make a backup of my data to a CDR after every time I use Quicken. I alternate between 2 different CD's with each backup. I then take the CD with the most recent backup to work and lock it in my locker. That way I have a copy of my most recent back up in an "off site" location. When I make a new backup I then take that CD to work and swap it out with the previous one and take it home to use for the next backup. That way I have copies of every backup I have ever done. Believe me, I have had things go wrong and have acutally had to use these backups to restore my data. It is the best insurance.
