DATA RECOVERY: Reckon Accounts Personal range backup recommendations
Your Reckon Accounts personal range (Desktop) data file set would be comprised of multiple files with the same name with different file extensions.
The files you need to send us are the one with the following file extensionsExample file names:
QDATA.QDF – this is the main component
– it may also appear with the name "My Company File" not displaying the QBW file extension
QDATA.QSD – these are supplementary files
QDATA.QEL – these are supplementary files
QDATA.QPH – these are supplementary filesQDATA.RKN – this is a compressed backup set
Recommended backup strategy
Create a new BACKUP folder on your computer or use the existing one created by Reckon Accounts Personal range.
- Inside that folder, create sub-folders representing each month.
- Inside each monthly folder, create sub-folders representing each week.
- Inside each weekly folder, create sub-folders representing each day (or every other day).
If using the built-in backup feature of the Reckon Accounts Personal range software, untick the feature that adds the date to the file name.
Make a backup of your current Reckon Accounts Personal range data file set and place it in the appropriate sub-folder.
Alternatively if you are comfortable copying files using Windows Explorer, simply locate your current data file set and copy them to the appropriate Backup sub-folder.
You can then choose to synchronise that BACKUP folder to store 'copy' of your data file sets on any cloud/online file storage service you prefer such as DropBox, Google Drive, Amazon Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, etc.
Note: You will need to make use of the instructions specific to the cloud service you are using.
