This issue affects Quicken 2009. In Quicken 2010 and newer, attachments are part of the data file.
If the restored data file no longer includes your attachments, there are several possible causes:
You do not have enough space to back up the file and the attachments
When you back up a Quicken data file with attachments, Quicken backs up the data first, and then, if there is room, it backs up the attachments. If there is not room for all of the attachments, none of the attachments are backed up.
The names of the folder containing the attachment and the restored data file do not match
If the name of the restored data file is not the same as the name of the folder that contains the attachments,follow these steps to restore the attachments:
You might also be able to resolve the issue by removing some of the attachments from your Quicken data file, or by making a new year file to reduce the size of your data file.
