    We made our annual "snowbird" trip from Upper Michigan to Texas. I picked up a virus somewhere along the line. The "'specialist' I had try to recover my stuff ended up losing my previously entered data and I did not have any of my original disks with me except my Dell-provided laptop program disk. I Re-installed (Dell-provided) Windows 7 program and bought new 2015 Quicken Deluxe program, thinking that I would be able to recover my Quicken files from an external (usb) drive backup. I tried several times to open the Quicken 2015) software and could not get it to follow through. Frustration! I had access to a new copy of Quicken 2014 Starter Edition, which I figured would be able to open my 2014-era backup file. Wrong! I am getting a message telling me that the QDF file is from a later version and cannot be regressed. I have not used the 2015 version other than to load the file on my laptop.

    Nothing I can find on Quicken/Intuit sites has any information on this topic. Any one here have an idea how I can get to my files?

    Thanks for the try.
