Hi there, @CindyLong.

 

Thanks for taking the time posting here in the Community. I'd be pleased to provide the steps in transferring your data from the old computer to the new one.

 

If you've stored a copy of the company file from your old computer, then you can go ahead upgrade your QuickBooks Desktop and install it to your new computer. Once done, you can restore the backup file that you so it will be automatically updated.

 

To guide you with the installation process, please check out these articles below:

These resources should help you move your QuickBooks to your new computer.

 

Keep me posted if there's anything else you need this upgrade concern by leaving a reply below. I'll be around to help you out. Have a nice day!

I always backup to a backup source and to a flash drive. But in the 2019 when I try to back up to the flash.  It tells me that I can't I need a folder.  So I put a folder on the flash and it tells me - 

QuickBooks does not have write permissions for this folder.  Please choose a different folder.

 

Also I don't want to have a administrator on the account.  I never have.  We are a family small business and I'm not worried about protection for the quickbooks.  How do I deactivate or is that required for the 2019 version?

Hi there, @KSH,

 

Thanks for joining the conversation and for giving us the chance to lend you a hand. I can share some information on how to get past the error you're getting when creating a back up copy.

 

Here are a few scenarios why this QuickBooks error appears while saving a back up file:

  • Your file is saved in a protected location or a restricted location.
  • The folder permissions are not set up properly.
  • The folder where the company file is located is damaged.

To get past the problem, let's run the QuickBooks File Doctor to resolve damages with your company file. Here's how:

  1. On your computer download the QuickBooks File Doctor.
  2. Once downloaded, double-click qbfd.exe file to install the File Doctor.
  3. If you do not see it automatically opening, look for a green wrench icon in your Windows task bar.
  4. Choose either Both file damage and network connectivity or Network connectivity only.
  5. When prompted, enter the Admin password for your company file then click Next.
  6. After the diagnosis, close File Doctor.

Once completed, try opening your company file again and see if the issue is resolved. If not, I'd recommend following the remaining steps from this article: Message: You do not have sufficient permissions to the specified folder

 

That's it. Please update me on how it goes, @KSH. I'm only a post away if I can be of further assistance. Have a good one!
