How to restore a Quickbooks backup file
     

Problem Description:

How to restore a Quickbooks backup file?

Resolution:

Quickbooks company files are stored with a file extension of .qbw. Backup copies of Quickbooks company files are stored with a file extension of .qbb.

  1. If your backup is on a removable disk, insert it into the appropriate drive (3.5-inch disk drives are usually labeled as A:). If your backup is on multiple disks, insert the first disk.
  2. From the QuickBooks File menu, choose Restore (or Maintenance and Restore on Quickbooks 2006)  to open the Restore Company Backup window.
  3. If the Filename or Location information in the Get Company Backup From section is incorrect, click the upper Browse button. (If it is correct, continue to step 4.) This will open the Restore From window.

    1. Select your backup file location from the Look In drop-down list.
    2. Select the filename from the center of the window. (Your backup file will look something like [Company Name].QBB.)
    3. Click Open. You will return to the Restore Company Backup window.
  4. The lower Filename and Location fields in the Restore Company Backup To section contain the future name and location of the restored file. If you decide to change the name or location, click the lower Browse button to open the Restore To window. (If you do not need to change the filename or location, skip to step 5.)

    1. From the Save-in drop-down list, choose the location to which you would like to restore the file.
    2. Enter a new filename in the Filename field, giving it a .qbw extension.
    3. Click Save. You will return to the Restore Company Backup window.
  5. Click Restore and then carefully read any messages that may appear before the restoration process begins.

Note: If at any time you receive the message, [Filename].qbw already exists. Do you wish to replace it?, or the message, You are choosing to overwrite an existing company file. Are you sure?, we recommend you click No.

If you click Yes, your restored file will overwrite your existing file. To be safe, click No, and then enter a temporary filename in the Filename field, making sure it has a .qbw extension. Once you are certain the restored file is functioning properly and contains the correct data, you can always rename the restored file to the original filename, which will safely overwrite the original .qbw file.

Problem Description:

Quicken data files are stored with a .qdf extension. There may also be two other files with .qel and .qph extensions. The secod two files contain online banking and tax profile information.Quicken backup files are stored with a .qdf extension if the file is a single file. If the backup is stored over multiple disks then the extension will be .qb1, .qb2, etc.
