I'm strongly considering the same when my Quicken 2016 expires. Other key with Quicken is backing up your data file. I corrupted mine a month or so below. Fortunately I recovered the file from the week prior using Crashplan. Losing this data file would be really vexing as reentering the information is not an option.protagonist wrote: ↑Wed Nov 01, 2017 9:45 amThe older versions were great.
Simply enter your data manually and avoid online updates. The time you will spend doing so may be less than the time you spend dealing with Quciken problems. Plus your info remains on your computer and thus is more secure, and you don't have to worry about invasiveness or data mining.
My last update was Quicken 2010. It still does what I want it to do. Intuit probably has no idea who or where I am anymore, as I have not gotten any spam from them in many years.
It won't fly in the modern world, but I'm resistant to subscription based pricing. I have a (perhaps irrational) dislike of the drip drip of ongoing costs, particularly for things I used to buy and be done with. Mind you, Quicken has had a "subscription" plan for some time with the 3 year sunset of online services -- basically your purchase divided by 3 was your "subscription".
