A backup for a business stores all information necessary to completely recreate its accounting records, including transactions, customer and supplier information, inventory status, reports, attachments, as well as custom themes and settings. Using backups, you can: Recover data after it is lost, as when a storage drive fails, recover data from an earlier time, for example, before someone began making entry errors, transfer data between computers, build redundant data caches, migrate data to different editions of the program (desktop, server, or cloud). A backup includes data of only one business. If you have multiple accounting entities, each must be backed up separately. If desired, these backups can be to separate locations. And a single business can be backed up to multiple locations.
