Question about Intuit Quicken 2001 Deluxe (256101) for PC

Lost checking account data

I have had difficulty with back up to a floppy recently as it tells me "source file" cannot be found. I input my checks on December 16th and planned to reconcile when my statement arrived, which occurred yesterday. When I went to reconcile, all my data from 4/20/08 to date is missing.

I have searched my entire computer and cannot locate the files with data. If I cannot restore somehow, I will have no choice but to enter 8 months of data.

If you can help me, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you and Happy New Year.

    Thanks for your help but I have done every possible search on my computer for back ups of any kind. I can still only find an account that ends with 4/20/08. If you have any other suggestions, please let me know as I have started re-entering data and it is a lot of work.

    Thanks much and have a good day.

Hi Donna.

Do a backup of the most recent data first, so that at least data up to 8 months ago are fine.

If you are sure that you searched for your data properly, and data is not found, then a possible explanation is that somehow an 8 month old backup had been restored by mistake.

If this is the situation, the only thing you can do is using an undelete software.

This may not work, sometimes there is no way to recover deleted files.

Do a backup of all your files before starting undelete.

Below you find different undelete tools, download, install and test a couple of them:

FreeUndelete - OfficeRecovery

Undelete Plus 2.98 Download

Freeware file recovery software

Recuva - Undelete, Unerase,

Hi
first a suggestion, please don't use floppys for data backup as they are quite unrealiable in my opinion.

if the file was ones stored on the computer and you remember the filename and file type? it is possible that you would be able to recover it.

Give this software a Try and see if it can find the file

Use the demo thats free to try.

    also it just came to me, you can scan the floppy with the software I posted above and see if it can recover the file from the floppy.

Have you looked in the quicken folder on your computer? In there, should be a folder dubbed back up which should also have a backup of your account.

How to remove a program,that is not on the "ADD & REMOVE" list


Try running the program first and seeing if there is any option to remove it that way. If there is not, then you will have to delete all the program data manually.
Enter the C:// drive and look for a file called Program Files. Look for the folder with the name of the program or the program's publisher. If you find the program's, delete the folder and if your find the publisher, enter that folder and delete the program's folder. Some newer systems have Program Files (x86) or (x64), so check there too.
Also, turn on viewing of hidden files. Depending on your operating system, there are multiple ways to do this, google "Viewing hidden files in (insert operating system)". After these are revealed, go back to the C:// drive and enter Documents and Settings, followed by your username. A folder should now be seen which is a lighter color and looks different from others name Application Data. Enter this hidden file and delete the Program folder or enter publisher then delete the program folder.
I hope this helps and apologize if it does not,
-Robert

Convert QB POS to QB Premier Accountant


a) If you previously syncronized POS 2008 with the financial product, then no, you cannot syncronize the data again, unless you tag each transaction (for the whole years) as "unsent".

b) If you have never syncronized POS 2008 with any QuickBooks Financial product, then yes, you can syncronize/download the data into QB 2009 Accountant Edition.

Before you do either: Make sure you do not already have 2008 data in your file.

Unexpected shut down when clicking to another area My QUICKEN 2001 has began to shut down when I click to go to another feature...like Savings to Checking, for instance.Now it seems that every time I click...


Hi.
If Quicken is shutting down you won't be able to access your accounts.You need to repair the software first.
All you can do is trying to start in safe mode by pressing F8 on startup and check if Quicken can start in safe mode.
If the problem started recently, you can try doing a system restore to a date before the problem started. You find System restore from Start button at:
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore
If that does not fix the problem, then you need to reinstall Quicken using the software CD and your licence number. If you choose to reinstall on top of the existing installation you wont loose any setting (repair).
If quicken does not reinstall from current account, then create a new account with administrator privileges and then reinstall quicken from the new account.
If you are still not able to remove and reinstall the software you can try using the free Microsoft utility available here to remove recently installed software.
Note: A new Quicken setup does not delete your data, but there is the chance that data had been previously damaged. In that case you can use a recent backup, or try recovering damaged data, see Basic troubleshooting to correct data file damage

Sounds like you have the famous "rogue security" virus. Be sure and back up all your data before continuing.

Download and intsall this software (it's not free but but better than a tech's fee) Cost $30.00:

http://www.enigmasoftware.com/

If you cannot even get to this page, then get on a second computer and download, purchase securely and install from a CDrom or flash drive to infected computer.

Run the program, register and kill everything. Fast, easy takes 10 minutes or less.

The other way around this is to back up everything and reformat computer. Scan all documents before putting back on computer. Virus is gone. This process takes one day to complete and is free if you have the restore disk or Windows disk.

do not download that spyware, use spybot.com for that, it is safe and easy to use... you can also goto cnet.com and use Adaware which is very good for spyware issues.. please let me know if you have more difficulty.. do you have some sort of security on your pc or router? i hope this helps clean up your pc, it works for me all the time.. i run both the programs just to see sometimes what one will find versus the other.. good luck.. d
