If you’re like most small business owners, you probably rely on QuickBooks to manage your finances and keep track of your inventory. And if you’ve ever experienced a data loss like the one I experienced earlier this year, you know that a bad data loss can ruin your business.
So what do you do if you lose your QuickBooks backup file?
First, you should back up your QuickBooks files on a regular basis. This way, if something does happen to your computer or data storage, you have a backup of your data to fall back on.
Next, you should create a detailed QuickBooks backup file. This backup file should include all of your account information, your transactions, and your QuickBooks files.
Finally, you should store your QuickBooks backup file in a safe and secure location. This is important, because if something happens to your computer, you’ll need to be able to access your data to restore it.
