How to Locate the Correct Data File in QuickBooks
We are running QuickBooks Enterprise 11.0. Two computers use the data. The host and workstation.
The work station went down with a virus. We had the computer sent out to our repair tech to get fixed. We used the host computer for the last week. We got back the workstation today and put it back into the network. Some how during the day today all of the data from the last week until today was lost.
The QuickBooks file was written over with the “old file” that the workstation had. There is no QuickBooks data stored on the workstation. We need you to recover all of the data that we entered for the last week.
Can you do this?
The easiest way to find the path is to go to File > Open Previous Company.
You can also search your network for all QuickBooks files be searching for *.qbw. This will bring up a list of all files ending in .qbw.
