Once the install completed, QP2013 asked me to restore from a prior backup. That did not seem logical to me, and it continued to ask me for what to call a current backup. This was not intuitive to me, and I clicked a few file names to give it an existing file name and got by that prompt, but was really unsure what QP2013 was trying to do there (maybe it can only convert from an existing backup format?)

I think this is simply Q asking you which existing Quicken data file you would like to load/convert. You may have multiple versions of your file on your computer and Q keeps several automatic backups as well. Not to mention if you maintain multiple Quicken files on one machine (ie yours, your daughter's, son's, parents, etc.) you would need to go through this conversion process when opening each file for the first time.
