I need to recover my files


QuickBooks Team

Need to speak to someone

Thanks for joining on this thread, @GP6931.

To clarify, may I know if you’re using QBO or the desktop version? This can help me provide a timely solution about your concern.

While waiting for your reply, allow me to share some information about recovering files for each QuickBooks version. For QuickBooks desktop, you can either restore the backup copy or use the Auto Data Recovery tool to recover your files.

The process of getting back the data file for each method is different, and I’m here to help. Here’s how to restore the backup copy.


  1. In your company file, tap the File menu at the top bar to choose Open or Restore Company.
  2. This will open the Open or Restore Company window.
  3. From there, mark the radio button to Restore a backup copy and then click Next.

  4. On another window, select Local backup and hit Next to continue.
    lc bak1.png
  5. In the Open Backup Copy screen, look for the saved file and it should look like this: [Your company name].qbb.
    lc bak2.png
  6. Choose the backup file and click Open and Next.
  7. Click Save when you're ready and respond to any messages that will display on the screen.

In regard to the Auto Data Recovery tool, this functionality is only available in QuickBooks Pro, Premier, and Enterprise Solutions for Windows. The ADR can help recover lost files through the following.  


  • Restoring lost transactions using your current Transaction Log file and a copy of your Company file.
  • Restoring all but the last few hours of transactions with a copy of both your Company file and your Transaction Log file.

For detailed instructions for each method of retrieving the data file, check out the Recover lost data with QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery guide and choose which one that works for you. The article outlines the steps on how to retrieve files via the original .TLG file with .QBW.adr file.

If you’re using the online version, we automatically backup your data up with the same level of security used by banks and financial institutions. Since we update your records with every change, we’re unable to restore your file to a previous point in time. The following article provides an overview of how QBO keeps your data safe and secure: Do I need to back up my data with QuickBooks Online?


To avoid accidental loss of transactions, let me share the following articles for future reference. Each one outlines the instructions on how to keep a copy of the company data file for QBO and the desktop version.


Click the Reply button and post a comment if you have any clarifications about recovering files in QuickBooks. I’m more than happy to assist further. Enjoy the rest of the day.

I can definitely help you with that, PrestigePropertySolutions.


As your business grows, you may need to use a bigger web application to better manage your books. When you're ready to move, I'll show you how to import your data and switch your subscription.


You can start by downloading all your financial reports for record keeping. Here's how to do it:

  1. In QuickBooks Self-Employed, go to the Reports menu.
  2. In the Tax details section, select a tax year.
  3. Click Download to get a Tax Details report.
  4. Download a report for each tax year you have in QuickBooks.
  5. Repeat the following actions above for your Profit and LossMileage Log, and Receipts.

After that, you can now start moving your data to QuickBooks Online by following the steps below:

  3. Choose Switch plan or Choose plan for the QuickBooks Online plan you want.
  4. Follow the on-screen steps.
  5. Select Bring my data if you want to choose which data you move over. If you don't want to move any data and start fresh, select Start fresh.
  6. Click To QuickBooks Online to move your data to QuickBooks Online. If you see a billing info review screen, select Change plan to start.

Take note that the transfer can take some time. Additionally, if you don't see the Explore QuickBooks Online plans option, you'll need to manually move your data. You can refer to this article to be guided in doing the process: Switch from QuickBooks Self-Employed to QuickBooks Online.


I also recommend checking our Getting Started guide to help set up your new QBO company.

Let's perform some troubleshooting solutions to access your QuickBooks Online (QBO) account, Administrator07.


We can check if your browser is compatible with QuickBooks. Just go to and if you see a red warning icon, just update your browser’s settings. Then, select the button under the warning, then follow the steps provided. If it works, go to your regular browser and clear the cache to delete those temporarily stored files and browsing history. The overtime collection of data can create corruption, however, removing this should fix the issue. You can also use supported, up-to-date browsers to roll out the possibility of a browser-related issue.

  1. Go to and try to sign in.
