Microsoft Money 2001 backup restoration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone know how to make the backup file active to be able to add to it with new inputs? I got a new computer and it allowed me to load the program and upload the backup file but it states that it is read-only. It will not allow me to add to it without starting over from scratch.

  • Close Money if it is open. Copy the backup file to your desktop. Right click that copy, and choose Open. That should launch Money.

    Do not accept the default location to restore to.  Instead, Browse to your "Documents" and
    specify a filename that does not yet exist there.
