QBO Database failure and multi-day rollback

We had a major QuickBooks Online database failure that Intuit called a "glitch".  No one can explain what happened and they had to rollback our database to 3 days ago meaning all transactions post that time are lost, and the rollback takes 24 hours so we are basically down for that time, and have payroll coming up.  Has anyone else had the same problem?  This is a huge issue that should not happen with any cloud based service let alone your accounting and payroll system.


Hello there, fritzleyca,

We need to get clear details as to why there's a need to do a rollback to your QuickBooks database. In order to do so, I recommend contacting our QuickBooks Online Support Team

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
