QuickBooks Backup Service
All of us know the importance of backing up your financial data like your QuickBooks company file. Every business should have a solid backup plan for its business files, but all too often the small business fails to do this. Intuit has implemented QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery, a feature that will automatically make a local backup copy of your company file for you. At this time this feature is only available in Pro and Premier, not in QuickBooks Enterprise or QuickBooks Premier Accountant’s Edition. If you have one of the supported versions of QuickBooks you may see an additional folder show up on your computer, with a few new files. This is the QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery folder, and it will show up on its own.
QuickBooks Backup Support allows you to include part of your data to backup. You can also customize your backup scheme to fit your needs by selecting only the files and directories you wish to backup. If you want to change the files that you include or exclude, you can do that using the provided backup software. The QuickBooks Online Backup support service also make it simple to restore your files in case your computer crashes, is stolen, or other such adversity. QuickBooks Online Backup is a secure, remote backup service that manages your backup strategy for you from a remote site.

A: When you open a QuickBooks company file, the QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery feature will perform some internal diagnostics on the file. If the file has been opened and passes the tests, the program assumes that this is a good file and a backup copy is made into the ADR folder. Once the initial copy is made, the ADR transaction log will contain all transactions added to the file from that point on.
