You need to back up your Payroll company file on a regular basis. If your computer is lost, stolen, or damaged, your backup is the only copy of your information you'll have to restore your company file.
Save your backups to external storage, like a USB stick or an external hard drive, and store the back up separately to your computer. It's a good idea to store your backup offsite or in a fire-proof safe.
For backups saved on external storage devices, you should check them now and again (by restoring the backup) to ensure they still work.
- Go to the File menu and choose Backup.
Click on the ellipsis (...) button and select the location you want to save the backup to.
- Click OK and then OK again.
- A message confirms your backup has been completed. Click OK.
Your backup is saved in the location you specified.
