If you choose QuickBooks Online, you can join our blog. This will keep you in the loop with what's new and coming on the program. And, here's to pick the version you want for your business: https://quickbooks.intuit.com/pricing/.
I can receive either of the 2021 single-user versions from my employer at no charge. Though the data is intact, the 2020 desktop program freezes at the opening screen. Because my version is over one year old, Intuit would not support troubleshooting without a fee. It would be cheaper to replace it with 2021 as free one-year support would be included with a new version.
Thank you for your reply. I have been using QB for more than 20 years and I notice that there are many, many QB-related files all over the place. Many reference older versions. This does not include qbw and qbb datafiles/backups files. Many have zero bytes and are others dated many years ago. If I replace my QB version can I copy and backup onlythe qbb and qbw files and remove all other QB related files?
Thanks for adding more details about your concerns, IIt is Just Me.
Based on the scenario, you can save a copy of the company. Then, use a differen folder when you create one to easily delete and clean old files.
Also, the QBBackupTemp folder is used as a holding area for QuickBooks file components during the QuickBooks Backup (.QBB) file preparation process. It’s automatically deleted once the backup file is completed.
