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

People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
