Cannot Backup


We can perform other steps to backup your files, Mr.Black.

If you're trying to back up the file to a default location, it's possible there's no enough space left on the local hard drive. You can try saving the file to other backup location like a folder on your computer, CD, USB flash drive, or other removable storage devices.

Here's how:

  1. Click File on the top menu.
  2. Choose Back up to alternate location.
  3. Enter the path or browse to the backup location and enter a file name. 
  4. Click Backup.
  5. Click Finish.
For more details about creating a backup file, you can check out this article: Create or restore backup files in QuickBooks Desktop Point of Sale.

If you want to delete some old backup files in the backup file default location, I'd suggest contacting our Technical Support Team. They'll help you remove the old files to give some space on the local hard drive or move them to a different file folder location.

Here's how to reach them:

  1. Click Help on the top menu.
  2. Choose Help & Support.
  3. Under Can't find your answer? section, click contact us.
  4. Click QuickBooks Setup & Navigation and choose File Setup & Management.
  5. Click Start a Message to contact us.

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.
