why arent my older 941 forms in the filling history

I need to send copies of our first two quarterly 941 forms, of 2018, to our insurance Co. I can not find them.  I saw a message somewhere that said quickbooks only saves one version of the form, and since the 941 was updated in 2019 the older version is no longer supported.  But, isn't there a backup somewhere on my computer? I have not been able to locate it.

This will happen if you rename or move your company file, as the forms are stored in a folder that uses your company file's name within the folder where your file is stored.

We have not renamed or moved our company file.  I do remember having some issue with quickbooks last year, some software issue that quickbooks had to help me with.  But I have know idea what they did.  I let them work on it.  How do I find my older forms now?

THANKYOU! Light bulb moment for me.  All I had to do was locate the older company file.  Clicked on "File", "Open previous Company", (change the set number of previous Companies" to two), and there it was.  The old Company with the 941 history I was looking for.  Thanks for helping to turn on my light bulb!
