QuickBooks Enterprise Edition 2020 Company file size question.

I have a QuickBooks Enterprise Edition 2020 company file that is 1.7 Gb and growing. The file has been in use for 8 years.  the company file is regularly verified and rebuilt.  Also the file is regularly round trip exported and imported to a portable file. 

 

Is there a limitation on file size? Intuit documentation says there is no file limitation since 2006. Intuit telephone support says there could be instability when the file gets over 1Gb. 

 

Everything else I read implies there is.

 

What is the answer?

 

Does the compress  function work?

QuickBooks data files larger than 500MB need to be optimized every 6-12 months to ensure they run at top performance. There is no internal functionality in QuickBooks to optimize the data file other than running a condense. As additional option, you may consider to purchase a 3rrd party service to optimize your file. We will copy all data into a new data file, remove unwanted temporary data, and audit trail data to bring down file size by 25-40%. This will improve the performance and stability of your data file.

Like Fiat Lux said, you best bet is to get a 3rd party service to condense the file in order to optimise performance.

Are you able to provide some suggestions of 3rd parties that can do this?
