I've been using Quicken for over 20 years. Besides my personal records I also have two files for a not-for-profit local service organization for which I was treasurer. One file was for the administrative side of the organization and the other was for the charitable side. The organization had been declining in membership for several years. The pandemic pushed us over the edge and we decided to dissolve in August 2020.

Everything is settled and closed but I can't rule out the possibility that I may have access the files in the next couple years. So far I've left them on my hard drive, easily accessible through Quicken. I do an external backup monthly of my Quicken files (currently on a CD). It occurs to me that Quicken will continue to automatically create new budgets each year if I leave the files where they are. Is there a better way to archive the data and still be able to easily open the files in Quicken should the need arise?
