I am thinking of using easy transfer to move files from my quicken program from my laptop (w/vista) to my new computer w/windows 7. I understand I need to install org quicken disk on my new computer which I have done. My question is, if I use method will I just be coping the files or will I be making a complete transfer. I would like to keep a copy in old laptop for a while. I'll take any and all suggestions.

Many moons ago I used quicken and if I remember correctly you can make a back up of your data file. I would back up the data file on the old system and restore it on the new system. Sounds to me like "easy transfer" is a third party program you are gonna install. If that is the case I don't think there is a need for it.

yes, back up your data files before you do something important on your operation system.

Hello .. as Mrailia518 suggested all you need to do is back up the data from your quicken program on your old computer.  I found these steps on the intuit site to help you.  You don't necessarily need to back up your entire computer as auguske suggested.
