I have a dead laptop but the hard drive is still working. We have a new pc with Reckon Accounts installed, but as I can't create a backup to import, how can I recover the data? Can I import files another way? The old hard drive is attached to the new computer & the files are accessible.

copy the company file from old HD to new HD (while RA is closed)

look in:
C:\Users\Public\Documents\Intuit\QuickBooks\Company Files

you may also need to copy image files in case you use image logos and templates, once done, open the QBW file
