Restore your company file

Using AccountRight v19? Your help is here: Australia | New Zealand

When you back up your company file, a copy of the file in its current state is created as a compressed file with a .zip extension, such as "MyBackupDDMMYYYY.zip".

To open a backed up company file, it needs to be restored in AccountRight. This process saves a copy of the backed up file in an AccountRight library, ready to be opened.

When you restore a backup, you can:

  • restore the file locally to a PC—you would do this to view historical information, reprint payment summaries or replace the local company file you work with

  • restore the file online—you would do this to replace your online company file with a backup file.
