I am trying to run a backup of our very large company file. It only ever saves as QBTempBackup.tmp. How can I get it to save a full backup? I am wanting to upgrade to 2017. Any help greatly appreciated.

Can you run a verify and rebuild first please? It might be an error in the file which is stopping it from backing up. Call me if you get stuck Kevin t:0407744914

Thanks Kevin. Will I loose any data if I do a rebuild?

Highly unlikely. Of course if the file has corruptions it might be good to find out.

Thanks, I will do a verify and rebuild after hours as the file is so large it generally takes a couple of hours. Cheers
