Restoring a file using QuickBooks version 99

First you need to open up QuickBooks and select <File><Restore>.  It will bring up a window with the heading  "Restore from".  Locate the QuickBooks file you want to restore, "your company file name.qbb" and click "open".  This will open another window with the heading "Restore to".  Locate your QuickBooks company file on your hard drive (for our clients, the file is usually located in your Desktop folder but it could also be in Program Files/Intuit/QuickBooks) and highlight your QuickBooks company file.  It will then prompt you and tell you that that file already exists and ask you if you're sure you want to replace it.  Say "yes".  It will then give you a pop up window "Warning, you are about to permanently delete this file, are your sure?" Type in YES.  If you do not see a prompt to TYPE the word "YES", please call our office for assistance, otherwise, you run the risk of having more than one QuickBooks file operating on your computer!
