Hi there, nathanevansplumb.
It will be my pleasure to help you get to the bottom of this and make sure you're able to upload to retrieve your reconciliation records.
I haven't received reports similar to this issue Usually, this sort of behavior is often the result of browser hang-ups which can be quickly resolved by clearing the browser cache. However, I recommend accessing your account in a Private browsing window first to verify if this is caused by the system or your browser.
Here are the keyboard shortcuts that will help you accomplish this in all supported browsers:
Check to see if your reconciliations are back. If they are, then your main browser may have too much historical data from previously visited websites which slows down internal processes and causes this kind of behavior.
To ensure this doesn't happen again, it's a good idea to clear the cache of the browser you're using. The following article contains additional insight, as well as steps for the supported browsers: Delete or disable cache and temporary internet files in your web browser
Let me know how it goes on your end. I'm determined to get this fixed for you. Thanks for coming to the Community, I'll be standing by for your response.
I'm having the same problem. I have three accounts. I reconciled my 3 accounts on 3/8/19. When I open reconcile in one of them it says last reconciled on 12/31/18. The other two accounts show my last reconciliation on 3/8/19. Clearing my browser history did not resolve the issue. Any suggestions?
I'm having the same problem. I have 3 accounts. I reconciled all 3 accounts on 3/8/19. When I open one of the accounts to reconcile it says last reconciled 12/31/18. The other two accounts show last reconciled 3/8/19. I cleared my browsing history as you suggested but it didn't help. Any more suggestions?
Thanks for bringing this reconciliation concern to my attention, @Dee08.
Allow me to provide you with additional information about your missing reconciled transactions.
Here's the possible reason your reconciled transactions are missing from your reconciliation reports.
With QuickBooks, you have the ability to verify who made changes on your account by viewing the Audit Log. Here’s how to check:
Once you have reviewed the audit log, if the transactions were deleted, there would be a need to re-enter those transactions manually or reconcile it again.
That should do it! This will enable you to fix any discrepancy when running the reconciliation report.
I use QuickBooks Desktop Pro 2017. There is no gear icon. How do I view reconciliation events with this version?
Hello there, @Dee08.
Thank you for providing the QuickBooks version you’re using. I can walk you through the steps in viewing the Audit Trail Report.
This report shows all activities done on the company file with the name of the user who performed it. You can view the changes made on the bank reconciliation by following the steps below.
Here’s an article about customizing reports for more information: Customize reports in QuickBooks Desktop.
Once done, you should see if someone changed the status of the reconciled transactions. If so, redo the reconciliation.
Check out the following articles for reference:
That should get you pointed in the right direction.

Thanks for the reply. I ran the Audit Trail report as you suggested. can't see anything that says someone changed the status of a reconciled transaction. It just shows every transaction I've
entered during the requested date range. Also, I don't see a filter in
this audit trail report for reconciled transactions. So, according to this
report and best I can tell there were no changes to my reconciliations. I have printed reports
showing I reconciled In Jan, Feb and March. I'm afraid to redo my
reconciliation reports if I don't know what caused this issue. Any
Thanks for the update, @Dee08.
I appreciate you checking into the Audit Trail Report to verify if there are changes on the reconciled transactions. Let’s make sure you’re accessing the most recent company file.
It’s possible that the one you restored is a backup copy of the company file before the reconciliation happen. This could be the reason why it’s showing a different last reconciled date.
Locate the right file and restore it by following the steps below:
Here are screenshots from step 1-4 for visual reference:
Refer to this article for more information: Restore a backup of your company file.
That should get you on the right track.
Let me know if this works out for you, I'm always here to help. Have a good one!
Confirmed I'm using the most recent company file. I have 3 accounts. Two of my accounts show my most recent reconciliation date. One does not show my most recent reconciliation date although I have printed reports that show it has been reconciled as recent as March 8. Is it safe to just go back and reconcile this account again starting in Jan? The one I'm having problems with is my main business account. I need to get this figured out soon...I'm beginning to get really nervous about this!!!
Thank you for getting back to us and providing additional information here in the Community. Allow me to step in and assist you with the strange behavior happening with your reconciliation in QuickBooks Desktop.
Usually, transactions get unreconciled only if there's a user that undo the reconciliation on your company file. Since you have a copy of the reports from the specific date that you've reconciled, I recommend doing it again.
Please also make sure to update your QuickBooks to ensure you'll have the latest release for the program. In case you need the steps, I'm adding them below for you:
For your future reference, I'm also linking an article with additional information on this, such as the detailed steps on reconciling account:

im having the same problem as Dee and resent having to do 3 months of bank recs again. did a quick books update mess us up?
I too had 3 months of bank recs disappear. very unhappy.!!!!!!!!!! not sure what to do
It's nice to have you as part of the conversation, @nora rozin,
Allow me to join the discussion as I want to make sure you have the correct reconciliation history in QuickBooks.
Before anything else, may I know if you recently restored a back up? Any information you can share will help us drill down the issue.
If you have missing information on your company file, it's possible that you're opening a wrong file or restored an outdated back up. To get past this, you can do a global search on your computer to get the most recent *.qbw (company file extension) or *.qbb (back up extension) files. Let me guide you through the steps:
Step 1: On your computer, perform a wild card search for all company files by typing one of the following into the search bar:
Step 2: Open your file in QuickBooks 2016 depending on the type of your QuickBooks file.
I'm confident that these steps will get you to the right direction. Please let me know how it goes. I look forward to your response about this. Have a good one!
i have lost 3 months of bank reconciliations. in the past i have lost check payments as well, even tho i have a hard copy back up of these things being completed. how can i fix this? i am the only one who uses qb desktop in my business. i discover this missing issues at random, and have lots of new data entered after them. is there a way to merge back ups if i can find an older version without things being deleted?

Me too! 3 months of reconcilliation gone. Looks like MANY are having this problem all at the same time. Can't blame the accountant. Looks like a QB update issue. What's the plan????

Checking you Previous Reconciliation report allows you to know if you've reconciled for those months. And your Audit Trail shows if someone did undo your reconciliation.
