Microsoft Money 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Have replacement computer with Windows 8 (ugh!)  Have installed Microsoft Money 2007 and it worked OK for a day or so though backup didn't backup current information on C drive--had to restore from memory stick after backing up on it.  Now, after opening and doing backup restore I get message that Microsoft Money isn't working and will shut down.   I've used Money for years and depend on it for my personal bookkeeping.    HELP please!

  • 1. It is critical that you do not put your *.mny file within the Program Files folder. It is usually best to put it into the user's Document folder.

    2. Change your backup file locations to places that exist on the new computer, but not within the Program Files folder.

    In Tools->Settings->BackupSettings
       x Automatically backup my Money file every time I close Money
      Save in [a place on your hard drive ]. It is best to Browse to
         a location rather than typing the path.
       x Ask me before backing up each time*
       x Compress Backup Files
       Keep only the _20_most recent backup files [adjust to taste]

     x Perform scheduled backups every _28_ days
      Save in [a USB flash drive location]
       x Ask me before backing up each time*
       x Compress Backup Files
       Keep only the _2_most recent backup files [adjust to taste]

    Then periodically, perhaps each month or three, copy your latest
    backup (uniquely named by Money) to a CDR.
