Back up your QuickBooks Online! Intuit’s web-based servers have backup options: export to Excel, archive a QuickBooks Desktop file, and use 3rd-party apps.

Backing Up QuickBooks® Online Training Course Description

QuickBooks Online is hosted, and hypothetically never needs to be backed up. But there are plenty of reasons to back up your file: an archive, a snapshot in time, a failed import, restoring accidentally deleted transactions.


We’ll look at several different backup strategies to choose which one is right for your needs.


We will also look at 3rdparty apps including, Chronobooks, and SafetyNet.
