Click on File > Backup and Restore > Restore from Backup File
Browse your computer to find the backup file you want to restore. The Quicken backup file has the extension .QDF-Backup.
Double-click on the Quicken backup file name. A pop-up window, Restore from backup file, will open. You will need to browse to a location to save the Quicken data file. Be sure it is a location on the local hard drive.
Note: In Quicken 2010 and newer, you cannot open your backup file directly. In the File > Open Quicken File window, backup files are not visible.
Restore a Quicken data file from the Web:
Select the File menu and select Restore or Restore Backup File > Browse Online Backup.
A dialog lists the last 90 days of backups you have made of each Quicken data file that you are backing up online. The file with the most recent date and time stamp is the most recently backed up data file. Select the data file you want to restore, and click OK.
To close the confirmation message that Quicken displays when your files are restored, click OK.
To open the file you restored, select the File menu and select Open.
