How to transfer information between computers

I have an old version of YANB on on old laptop. The older version of YNAB installed around 2015. I have 5 years of data on my old system and hoping you can help me transfer from the old computer to the new. Can you help?

  • If you are using Dropbox (Cloudsync), your budget will sync when you install Dropbox on the new computer.

  • Thank you,  what is Dropbox? I am from the dark ages when it comes to technology.

      Tan Hammer Dropbox is a program your version of YNAB used to synchronize files between the desktop and mobile devices (smart phones). YNAB could also run without syncing to other devices. The location of your budget files would depend on which mode it used.

      Is your old laptop working?

  • In a file explorer or My Computer, look at the root of drive C for a folder called Dropbox. (If you see a folder called Windows, you're in the right place.) If you see it, then look for a folder called YNAB inside the Dropbox folder.

    If you can't find those, then look under My Documents for the YNAB folder.

    Let us know which you have.
