0 min read

As a small business owner, it’s crucial to make regular backups of your QuickBooks files. In case the computer on which you have your QuickBooks installed breaks down, you can restore the data from your most recent backup to prevent any data loss. To back up your QuickBooks, take the following steps:

  1. Log in to QuickBooks in single-user mode. If you’re already logged in, switch to single-user mode in the File menu.

  2. Select the Back Up Company option under the File menu.

  3. Select Create Local Backup and choose Local Backup.

  4. Click Options and select where you want to store your backup. It’s best to store it on an external hard drive or online.

  5. Click the OK button and then click the Next button.

  6. Choose the Save It Now option and click the Finish button to begin the backup process.
