If you’re moving your QuickBooks files to a new computer, the first thing you need to do is backup your QuickBooks files. This will help you if something goes wrong during the transfer, and you can always restore your QuickBooks files from the backup.
Next, connect your new computer to your home network and open the QuickBooks file that you want to transfer. Once the file is open, click on the File tab and then click on Export.
On the Export window that opens, select the folder where you want to export the QuickBooks files and type a name for the exported file. Click on Export and then wait for the file to export.
Once the file has been exported, connect your new computer to the internet and open the exported file. Locate the QuickBooks file and drag it over to the QuickBooks folder on your new computer.
Now, open the QuickBooks file on your new computer and click on the File tab. Then, click on Import.
On the Import window that opens, select the file that you just dragged over from your old computer and click on Import.
Your QuickBooks files should now be imported and you can start using them on your new computer.
How to back up your QuickBooks data
Assuming you have a recent backup of your QuickBooks data, you can move QuickBooks to a new computer relatively easily. The first step is to export your data from QuickBooks. To do this, open QuickBooks and select File > Export. On the Export Settings screen, select the QuickBooks data file you want to export (usually your company file).
