Hi everyone. I am using Hosted and when cleaning up the files accidentally deleted my old company which I did not want to do.
I have it saved on my desktop, so I tried to restore it.  Open Or Restore / Restore a Back Up Copy (.QBB) / NEXT / Local BackUp / NEXT / Restore From....

this is the point where I get lost.

The drop down selection box is automatically keyed to My Backup (B:) but its not in there because I deleted it accidentally as previously stated.

So i clicked on the down arrow, clicked on desktop and my backups folder which i have on my desktop does not appear.  In fact it appears to me to be the Hosted desktop and not mine.

Can anyone help?

Hi Jacquie,

You'll need to upload your backup file using the Reckon Accounts Hosted toolbar (select the upload option) to the B drive. You can then restore it from your B drive.

Details on how to use the Accounts Hosted toolbar here -

Let me know how you get on
