Quickbooks POS

My server computer died last night. I need to setup my register as the main POS.

It won't let me do anything except "search for available servers" under Company Operations.

If I reinstall will I lose all of my company data?

Is there an easy way to toggle from being just the register to being the main computer?

Hello hopsandberriessouth,


Thank you for posting here in the Community. It would be my pleasure to help you with any questions you may have with QuickBooks Point of Sale.


If you don't secure a backup copy before reinstalling the QuickBooks Point of Sale system, you'll lose your company data. That said, you can follow these steps to protect your file from data loss:


  1. Click the File tab at the top menu bar.
  2. Select Back Up Data.
  3. Specify the backup location.
  4. Click Backup, then Finish.

I recommend the following article for further guidance on creating a backup and also installing the program as well:
