Thanks for the reply, donr1450.


We'll need help from Support to check further why you have no available backups despite having a correct setup. You can reach them using these steps:

  1. Click on Help and select QuickBooks Desktop Help.
  2. Select Contact Us at the bottom.
  3. Enter a summary of the scenario and click Let's talk.
  4. Click on Message an Agent.

By the way, we made contents relevant to our situation today. You can check them on the QuickBooks Blog page.


If you have other questions in mind, please don't hesitate to go back to this thread.
