Quickbooks Desktop Mac 2016 suddenly saves as dmg instead of qb extension

For some reason I notice the last time I backed up it saved as dmg

for the past years it always backed up as qb extension

 

I reopened the qb file inside the dmg folder and backed up again - its still saving as dmb.

how can I get it to save as qb again?

 

thank you

Welcome to the Community, cowboysst.

 

The default extension for QuickBooks Desktop (QBDT) for Mac back up is DMG. The system saves it as as an Apple disk image. It will only change to MAC.QBB if you choose the option to create a backup or move a file over to QBDT for Windows.

Fritz many thanks. I had a feeling that was the answer, I was puzzled why it used to save as QB in the past, but as long as the saving process is correct I am good and smiling. Hoping you are feeling much joy.
