Backing Up QB Files

Posted by taxguru on April 15, 2007


Subject: Quickbooks Question


I have Quickbooks 2005 Basic and I need to backup just my calendar year for 06 is there a way to do that.
Please help. thanks



There is no way to backup just part of the data in a QBW file.  It’s all or nothing.

I’m not sure why you would even want to backup part of the file and possibly lose the rest.

If your data file is becoming too large for your computer to handle, there is an archiving function that allows you to remove the details from before a certain date that you specify.  You may want to do that for before 1/1/06 and then your file will only contain the details for 2006.  Check the QuickBooks Help function for more details on how to do this.

Good luck.  I hope this helps.
