Sharing files between two computers

I have two computers that can share documents between the two computers and I want to be able to access Quicken Data from both computers without doing backup/restore etc. Would it be possible to relocate my data from c:programfilesQuickenQDATA to this shared folder that is not set up under the program files. In other words, is it possible to tell Quicken where to look for the data files. Thanks for any help you can give me.Phil

Example_ use Win Explorer to to create a new folder and then move the files to the new folder - make sure you get the full set of files. On opening QW for the first time, use File > Open and navigate to the new location. QW will then remember after the initial operation.As to sharing your files - suggest you read the knowledge base article <http://tinyurl.com/ejn8b&gt;. In summary, Quicken does not recommend file sharing over a network.Users have report
