Getting a backup of the cloud

On April 21, 2018, in news, by susan

One of the interesting things I’m seeing in the backup space is the increasing number of vendors that are offering up cloud backups.  But… the big problem I see in some of the offerings is the less than stellar means to restore those backups.

Recently I’ve been struggling to find a good solid way to backup AND restore to a different location – Quickbooks online.  There are online backup vendors out there, but to restore the data to another cloud subscription (in our case we want a capture of the QB at a certain point in time), it was hard to find a cloud backup that worked flawless in the restore process.

One alternative I’ve found is to make a desktop conversion from the online Quickbooks.  The trick is to hack up the browser a bit, and to run all programs with full admin rights in order to export out the data.

The full how to post is here

Not pretty is it?  But it does work to get a full and complete backup of the entire Quickbooks online database.
