I am taking my computer back to its original factory condition. How do I reinstall Moneydance with all my data intact? I have the 2011r2 version of Moneydance and my OS is Windows 7.

    First, you have to make a backup of your data file, which contains all of your personal financial information. It's in the format if you're using Moneydance 2011 and below. Once you have that file stored off the computer, then you can reformat your computer and reinstall everything, then copy the file back on to the computer and download Moneydance 2011 from here:

    and open the .md file with it. After doing that and re-entering your license key for Moneydance by going to Help -> Register Moneydance, you should be up and running again!
