In attempting to set up the iOS MD app I deleted my MD files on Dropbox. Also, I've looked on my Mac HD for the data file but can't find it. When go to File Open there are no files listed. Can you please help me to sort this out?

    Were you storing your main data file on Dropbox? If so, try logging into your account via Dropbox's website and restore that file. You should be able to restore deleted files for some number of days, if you just did this recently.

    If you were storing your data locally, it's likely still in the default file location:

    If not, try searching your system for all files and folders that end with the .moneydance file extension. If you find it, use the open other option from the Moneydance welcome screen or the menu bar (File -> Open -> Open Other) to select your yourfilename.moneydance data set.
