SUMMARY

The easiest way to transfer a Microsoft Money data file to a different computer is to back up your file on one computer and then restore it to the other computer.

If you are restoring a backup from an older version of Money to a computer that has a more recent version of Money installed, Money restores the file, recognizes that the file is in an older file format, and then automatically converts the file to the new version for you.
