Quickbooks .QBB recovery



I used to have QuickBooks desktop that came on some disks, but after replacing my computer I appear to have lost the disks. I have some QuickBooks backup files that I need to retrieve some data off.

Is there a way for me to access the back up files without purchasing a new subscription to QuickBooks?


Thank you.

Hello JTekone, thanks for posting and welcome to the Community


Please note that as of the discontinuation of QuickBooks Desktop for UK customers in June 2023, we no longer sell or offer support for Desktop software in this region. 


Depending on the version of Desktop that you're using, you may be able to open the file using a trial version. You can click here to download, install and use the 30 day version of QuickBooks Desktop 2021.


If you'd like further information on the discontinuation, please see here

Which QB Desktop year version do you have? You can use the trial version for good to access your historical data if required.
