Fix or Resolve QuickBooks Error -6150,-1006
If you don’t have CryptoWall Virus then company file is beyond repair. Now you have to look for recent backup which you must have stored on local system or on any thumb drive.
If we cannot find backup then we can look for ADR (Auto Data Recovery) file on Intuit default location. If you find it then you have to change .ADR to .QBW which would change into working file.
Now try using that company file. Once file is opened try verify data file by going to File > Utilities > Verify Data. If you get message “QuickBooks detected no problem with your data” then we are good to go with this company file.
If you get same error with this file as well then you do not have any choice but to create new company file and start with new transactions.
