Unable to restore backup quicken file
I have Quicken 2006 Business software. Recently my laptop was stolen and it had been little over a month since I backed up onto a thumb drive. I have not installed the Quicken 2006 onto my laptop w/OS Windows 8. Everytime I attempt to open my backup file, I receive error messages. Doesn't matter how I do it - restore backup, open file, find quicken files - the error messages are pretty much the same: "Quicken cannot valudate this file. Choose file menu. Restore backup file to restore a previous version of the data file." or "You cannot restore a file from the current directory." I have the backup saved on my desktop. What else can I do to restore this file? Thank you for your time and effort with this issue.
