Where is the Moneydance data file on Windows 10? I keep my documents on a second drive, but recently lost my system drive...which seems to have lost my AppData files, which I thought were being backed up.

I've been syncing on my phone, so I have DropBox setup. Can Moneydance sync from DropBox to get the data back on the desktop version?

    By default data sets are created and stored on Windows at:


    You can move data sets to a location of your choice after creation.

    Backups will be created at:


    If you do not specify a custom location.

    The sync data is not a backup but if the sync data is sound it can often be used in data recovery if no backup is available and the version of Moneydance you are using is from the last few years or so.

    In simple terms you follow the syncing instructions but use the setup of the second computer in those instructions.
