Once inside your company file, locate and click on the "File" menu at the top left corner of the screen. This will open a dropdown menu with various options related to your company file.

Step 3: Choose the "Save Copy or Backup" Option

In the "File" menu, look for the "Save Copy or Backup" option. Click on it to initiate the process of saving a copy of your QuickBooks file. This step ensures that your original data remains intact while creating a duplicate for sharing.

Step 6: Set Backup Options

QuickBooks provides options for customizing your backup. You can choose to save only the current transactions or include previous transactions based on your needs. Adjust these options according to your preferences and click "Next" to continue.

Step 7: Set a Backup Name and Complete the Process

Give your backup file a clear and descriptive name that indicates the date and purpose of the backup. This ensures easy identification later on. Once you've named the backup, click "Save" to complete the process.
