It could be really tricky if you want to move Quicken to a new computer because there are a few things that you must take into consideration. First of all, make it a point to take a backup, or else you might end up losing the data which is not a favorable condition. If you are moving your Quicken files to a new computer like from Mac to Windows or vice versa, you have to convert the file first. You don’t have to purchase a new copy as the same version can be used to move the data. There is an advantage for the premium members that they can access Quicken on the web on any system to see the accounts too without an additional installation.
