Backup no help.

I have lost all of the transactions I made, in all my accounts since 1/26/2021. All the balances end on that date in each Bank, Investment, and Asset account. When I tried to Back-up, those files were corrupted also. On the Summary Page under Reminders, it shows all reminders from February as OVERDUE, even though I did transact all of them.
      Do know how I might be able to salvage any of my data, ie change OVERDUE to Completed?

    I'm a fellow user.

    Data ending on a certain date I would not consider to be symptom of corruption, it is much too neat, more likely in my view to be a sign of an older data set.

    Are you sure you have not opened an older Moneydance data set. Look for folders with an extension of .moneydance on your system to see if there are any other Moneydance files present.

    If you are asking if you can bulk commit reminders to the registers the answer is you cannot.

    Hey dwg you hit the nail on the head. I was so use to just clicking the app and getting my data, I forgot all about different files that I had in the past. When I opened app, it went to what I expected, but some how I inadvertently opened an old file while I was inputting data.
    With your suggestion, I noticed right away the name at the top was different and went to FILE, OPEN and opened my current one, and presto, I am back in business.
    I did not expect to get any help, and definitely not this fast, so thank you very much for saving me an agonizing night in bed!
    And I guess that is why my back-up files were no use because I was looking at old back-ups.
    I need to clean my computer!

    Copy the files you intend to delete to a different folder and leave them there while you check to make sure everything still works only then deleting them.
