Hi Iqsysteck, 

QuickBooks Online is a cloud-based accounting software so any data changes or added are automatically backed up in the cloud. 

Manual back-up offline is not an available option at the moment.

When will manual backup be available? Let's say I entered a lot of entries and made a mistake and want to revert back to an original file before any entries were made. Normally a backup file would allow me to restore the original file and start from that original point again.

Have QB online sorted it so we can backup the file to home PC.

Thank you for joining us here, @aatrev.

 

I'm delighted to inform you that you can back up the QuickBooks Online data at a later time using a third-party app. Let me guide you how:

 

  1. Go to apps.intuit.com.
  2. Click the drop-down arrow beside the magnifying glass, then choose Australia
  3. In the search box, type Back up.
  4. Choose any apps in the list that you want to use. 

 

For future reference on how to export transactions, reports, lists, and many more, please check this article: Export Data out of QuickBooks Online.

I personally prefer online storage as well, PaulTranslift.

 

You're joining a thread for QBO Australia, and you're using QuickBooks Enterprise which isn't offered in Australia. Therefore, I'll take your questions as QuickBooks Desktop Enterprise USA.

 

We offer a subscription backup service called Intuit Data Protect. You can set it to automatically (scheduled) back up your files daily, or you can manually save your files to be retrieved later on. It is commonly used by clients with large files, and it's available to everyone who wants to store their QuickBooks files in the cloud.

 

Please check out this article for more details: Common questions about Intuit Data Protect.

 

By the way, you can change the flag icon on the Community page to the US flag before posting or searching for answers. That way, we can be sure that you'll only see threads and resources for the US version of QuickBooks.

 

If you have more questions about backing up your files, you can always go back to this thread.
