Employees payroll - lost data

Hello there, @dragon1512.


I can feel the challenges of losing your laptop and payroll data, @dragon1512. But I'm here to help you ensure your data will be recovered.


If you have set up Intuit Data Protect in your computer, you'll be able to retrieve your data. However, if it wasn't set up, you'll want to manually re-enter your payroll.


Also, you can contact the IRS to check if you can get a record of the employee's taxes. I'm adding the link I recommend IRS E-File Help Desk.


Please know that I’m just a comment away if you need anything else. I’m always here to help.
