Backing Up Your QuickBooks Data

Backing up your QuickBooks data is very important. If something ever happens to your computer, you will be able to restore you data file to another computer IF you have a backup.

The easiest way to backup your data is:

  • Click on File from the menu bar and Save a Copy or Backup. The following dialog box will come up.

  • Click Next.
  • Choose Local backup and click Next.

  • Choose your option. I recommend Save it Now and Schedule Future backups.

  • Choose how often and click Options to choose the location.

  • Name your file and enter time and days to do backup and click OK.
