Well if you can't find a copy Pocket Quicken version you need and want
to speed up PQ for and not loose your transactions. I would suggest
doing a full backup of your Newt (or at least where your Pocket Quicken
data is and not a incremental backup) then save this backup file
labeling it such as "Pocket Quicken data 2005-07" or something similar.
   Then in Pocket Quicken use the "trim transactions" to delete the
older transactions you don't need to have on hand at all times. This
will free up storage space and speed up Pocket Quicken, yet allow you to
restore old transactions if you wish. But before you do a restore, make
sure you have a current back up to restore to later or you will lose
all your transactions after the date of the "storage backup".
