How to Make QuickBooks Restore from Backup

Any backup is useless without the effective restoration. Although Handy Backup saves data by default in native format, allowing manual copying these files from backups to the necessary location or just using these data by the place, it still has an effective restoration procedure.

Changing restore location

Users can create and manage restoration task with exactly the same operations and interface considerations as when creating backup tasks. Just select for a restoration task type, then select a QuickBooks backup file as data source and choose the right destination to restore data.

Customers about Handy Backup


"One of my clients is using a Windows 10 Pro Dell computer for file sharing, particularly for QuickBooks, in their office. This purchase was installed on that computer to back up their files to a company Dropbox account twice daily. I will also use the HB Pro to make a disk copy, for easy recover, should it go down.

I′ve used HB for years and I love that it saves everything as individual Zip files, making recovery of files the easiest method possible. Therefore, I recommend it to all my clients for data security. I have already installed it on two clients file servers this year.

I would also like to say that your support team, particularly Victoriya Ermishina, have been terrific.

Thank you for your contact and your terrific product. I will continue to promote it to all of my clients."
