Where is my data stored?

Angie Rauscher -

Moneydance 2014 and 2015 will store any new data files you create in the same, default location.  If you have not manually moved your data file to a different location, your files will be stored in a default location.  The default location for your data file(s) varies depending on your operating system, and is listed below.

Mac OS X Lion, Mountain Lion, Mavericks, or Yosemite: /Users/<username>/Library/Containers/com.infinitekind.MoneydanceOSX/Data/Documents

Mac OS X Snow Leopard: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Moneydance/Documents

If you're using a Mac, you can go directly to your data set by right clicking (or Ctrl + clicking) the Moneydance title bar, then selecting the folder directly below your data set to open the folder that contains your data set in Finder.

After doing that, Finder will open and your data set will be selected (note: in some instances, the data set will have a folder icon instead of the Moneydance icon).

More recent versions of Windows: C:\Users\<username>\.moneydance\Documents

Older version of Windows: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.moneydance\Documents

Linux: /home/<username>/.moneydance/Documents

If you're using Windows or Linux, the location of the data set will be in the Moneydance title bar, so you can use Windows Explorer (or your preferred Linux file manager) to browse to the location of your data set and find your yourfilename.moneydance data set that way.

    I'm on OSX Mavericks, and the location seems right, but the Finder shows a Date Modified that's more than 10 days old (Feb 4), even though I've made multiple updates today. Is that the expected behavior? Why doesn't the finder show the current last-modified date?

    Your Moneydance data set is technically a folder (on Mac OS X it's a "bundle", which is a folder that has some settings to make it appear to be a file), so the reason the date isn't updating is most likely because the folder/bundle itself isn't being modified, but the data within it is. So yes, that is the expected behavior and as long as your data is current in Moneydance, then it's current on your computer even if it appears that it hasn't been updated.

    I hope that helps!
