Deleting data files in Quicken for Mac


You can delete Quicken data files just as you would with any other files.

To delete a data file

  1. If Quicken is running, quit the application.
  2. Drag the file to the Trash (at the end of the Dock).
    • I can't find my data file
      See this help topic on data files if you have trouble locating your Quicken file.


      Any files or folders you drag to the Trash remain there until you empty the Trash. If you change your mind about something, you can still retrieve it from the Trash if you haven't emptied it yet. Click the Trash icon to open the Trash window, then drag items back to your home folder. Choose Filder > Empty Trash.
