Restoring Backed-Up Information

If your company's QuickBooks file has been damaged or you've replaced your computer, you need to restore your company's QuickBooks file from the most recent backup. Note that all transactions you've entered in QuickBooks since the last time you backed up your file will need to be reentered. For this reason, you might want to enforce a check-off procedure whereby QuickBooks users at your company use checklists to show which transactions they enter and when the entries are made. In the event of a system crash and subsequent restoration of backup, you'll easily be able to see which entries need to be reentered.

Restore Backed-Up Information

Select Restore from the File menu to open the Restore Company Backup window.

Verify that the filename for your company backup file is correct.

Verify that the location where the backed-up file is stored is correct.

Click Browse if necessary to indicate the drive and folder where the backed-up file is stored.

Click Restore to begin the restoration process.

Click Yes to accept the overwrite of any data currently stored on your computer.

Type the word YES to verify you want to continue with the restoration process.

Click OK.

Click OK.
