Find out the best way to restore your backup company file to continue your QuickBooks work properly and avoid technical barriers.

Important: When you convert your company file to the latest version of QuickBooks then that company file will not be accessible in the earlier version.

To restore a backup for earlier QuickBooks Desktop Version (2010 and prior):

If you want to restore the backup file into your QuickBooks 2010 or prior then you can utilize the Restore Backup for earlier QuickBooks Version utility instead of doing the steps which we have mentioned above but you should have a copy of the Backup file with you.

Why should I use this tool?

The components that compress and decompresses files have altered significantly involving the later and earlier (just before 2010) versions of QuickBooks. This will make the backup files incompatible with unlike versions. This tool will make use of the company file backed up using QuickBooks 2010 and later versions to create a restored company file that one can open in QuickBooks versions ahead of 2010. Remember that the tool only works on the backup made during the earlier conversion.

To use the tool:

  1. Go directly to the File menu, then choose Utilities > Restore Backup for Earlier QuickBooks Version.
  2. Find the (…) button beside the Backup filename field.
  3. Select the backup company file, then choose open

  5. Through the Save in the drop-down, choose the folder in which you wish to save the restored company file.

  7. Hit “OK

Restore a backup company file even if the admin password is unknown

If you entered the wrong admin password then you will receive a message which states that “Your data has NOT been restored”. This is not a big deal you can use the Automated Password Reset Tool.
