How to deal with huge files -- QB Desktop

Hi everyone,


We've been using QB Desktop for ages, and of course, are ending up with a huge working file.


How can we thin it out a little, without having to start over with a new file?


We have inventory, and equipment that still has value and want to keep track of.


Thnak you

How to deal with huge files -- QB Desktop

Hello Mouselette,


Glad to have you reach out to us here. QuickBooks offers a dynamic platform that simplifies the way you manage your work. I'll be happy to share more info and help steer you in the right direction. 


The file compressing function you've described above isn't available in QuickBooks Desktop. I  can see the benefit of having this and I encourage you to send feedback about this to our engineers. You can do this by clicking on the Help menu and looking for Send Feedback Online. I also recommend looking into third-party apps on our site that can help you with this. You can search for these apps on our site I suggest choosing an app that suits your business needs based on the app description and reviews. 


In case you have additional questions, don't hesitate to reach back to me in the comments below. I'm here to help you achieve your QuickBooks goals.
