Hi Rav,
I have recently moved from Reckon on the desk top computer to Reckon Hosted. I havce done all the EOFY stuff and wondered how I save a back up version? When I went through the back up process through Reckon it used to let me back up onto an E: drive (my portable hard drive) but now it only gives me a B: drive. I backed up to B: drive but have no idea where that is....I assume it is Reckon's drive. I'd really like to have a copy for myself though. Any ideas would be appreciated. Regards, jono

Morning Jono,

You're correct, the B drive is a Accounts Hosted drive.

To access this, use the Floating Toolbar > select the 'Download Files' option > select the B drive in the dialog box that opens > choose your backup file > Once downloaded save to an alternate location of your choosing.

Check out our video on the Floating Toolbar here

Let me know if you have any questions,

Cheers
Rav
