I have lost the past years data for my checking account. I do have it backed up on a usb thumb drive, but I am not able to successfully import that backup.

    I am not support, just a user.

    There is information about this on the moneydance support. You will need
    to specify your version.

    Generally, the procedure is easy...look under File-> restore from
    backup, and then select the file. From there, it becomes somewhat
    tricky, depending on whether you have 107 or 2019. With 2017, MD will
    restart with the restored data base. With 2019, you will have to select
    the moneydance database through File -> Open [it took me five tries and
    a lot of pain to realize the difference, and that MD does _really_
    restore from the backup.
