IMPORTANT NOTICE: Reckon Accounts Hosted QBB backups

RavRav Administrator Posts: 11,895 Community Manager


Hi everyone,

As you will be aware, in Reckon Accounts Hosted, users are responsible for creating their own company file backups via File Menu > Save Copy or Backup. Over the years, there has been an incredibly large build-up of backup files stored on the Reckon Hosted system.

To ensure the best possible Reckon Accounts Hosted experience for you and all customers, we will automatically remove all backup (QBB) files that are over 365 days old, this will occur on the 28th May and will then be performed on an ongoing quarterly basis.

For information and steps on how to download your Reckon Accounts Hosted Backup (QBB) files, please click here. The terms and conditions have been updated to reflect the above changes, please review the latest copy here.

    Rav shouldn't we be encouraging end users to use portable backups? And yes, to store them locally rather than on the server? It's my usual practice.

    Yep 100% Kev. But keep in mind the above only applies to QBB backups that are over 12 months old.

    is there a way to zip all your backups so you can download them in a single download. This would be a much easier way to manage the files instead of having to download them one at a time

    Unfortunately, there is not Neville, the Hosted toolbar can only support single item download.

    Hi Rav,

    I'm new to Reckon Accounts Hosted and I just wanted to confirm that our latest QBB files we have will have all our data we need access to if we ever need to restore.

    @GinaTsiakos Yes, Reckon are just removing old backups (over 12 mths old) so make sure you backup regularly so your latest backup is current ☺️
