For the past week, when I've gone to backup my Reckon Hosted account file, the B:\ drive is missing and I can't save my backups. I've contacted Reckon technical support and they are looking into this for me. Has anyone else had this problem and how do you resolve it? It's end of financial year so I really want to backup and download by data.
I am having the same issue as Pam, Our backups are timing out - have tried 6 times and each time it gets to a different stage before finally timing out. Got to 97% late last night before it timed out. VERY frustrating and we can't upgrade to 2019 until the backup completes.
I see that the "B" drive issue seems to have been sorted BUT was the issue of failed backup's fixed? Backing up has always been an issue for us too, long drawn out failed attempts are common... 98% + with the system timing out. *Has this been sorted or is there a workaround, please?
What settings do you have in your backup - full, quick or no verification? the full will take longer... plus if verification is on - watch the progress bar, is it taking a long time during the verify phase or the backup phase...patience is the key - try a backup with no verification and walk away from the machine - dont click in the Hosted window at all until the backup is finished... very large files can take a couple of hours to backup...
Hi Pam & Jeff - there is a way to upgrade without doing a backup but you need to copy the file first and this takes some IT skills to make sure you dont mess anything up... ideally if you can wait for the backup to finish would be best? Or have a go at creating a Portable backup file - if that works with no problems..then you could take a chance of doing the upgrade and choose to cancel when it asks you to backup... but thats at your own risk... I would always prefer to take a copy of the file before doing this. Again - it all depends on how big your file is and how tidy it is... email me email@example.com if you would like some assistance with this... I am also thinking perhaps your TLG file is really big and that could be making the backup take a long time too?
