My client wanted to move their desktop version from one computer to another. I had her download QB onto new desktop, back up info onto USB drive and restore her backup. However, now every time she goes to enter anything in QB it wants her USB drive. How do we stop that? Will registering QB again change it to where she would only need to use the USB for backups?
Thanks for the reply. Let me join this thread so I can further assist you with the backup file.
If the backup file you restore is in an external device like a USB, make sure to transfer it first to the local hard drive. You can find the steps here: Move your company files to another computer. Once done, you can restore it again.
Go to the File menu, select Open or Restore Company.
Select Restore a backup copy and then Next.
Choose Local Backup and then Next.
Browse your computer for your backup company file. Select a folder to decide where to save your restored company file. Then select Open.
Also, the steps shared by LollyNino_C will change the backup settings. Make sure not to set it to an external device so it won't ask for one when creating a backup. You can review this article on how to set up the backup settings: Back up your QuickBooks Desktop company file.
