In order to prevent any loss of essential and confidential data, it is always essential to backup your MYOB premier files. By backing up these files, users stand a greater chance of being able to restore them with all relevant information again in the event of a crash or bug. Here’s how you can backup and restore your MYOB premier files:
First, access the file menu in your MYOB Premier software and look for the BackUp option. Choosing that will enable the window to pop up and facilitate you through the backup process. If you find your progress interrupted, make sure to check to see if additional features crucial to the backup process is not missing from your current MYOB Premier software. If the problem persists, contact MYOB support teams for assistance and advice.
If you are able to proceed, choose the backup type you want depending on the nature of your files. If you want the company file only, then choose BackUp Company File and M-Powered Services Centre only but if you require both the company file and templates, it would be more straightforward and effective to select BackUp All Data.
To maintain data integrity, it is recommended to go through the additional process of checking for errors in your MYOB Premier company file and make relevant changes before you follow through with the rest of the backup process. Let the verification process run through and finish. However, if you are certain that all information is accurate, choose Do not check company file and select continue.
To prevent disk failure from corrupting data and eliminate the risk of copying corrupted data over your backup files, make sure to create separate backups and secure the information. If you are storing the backup file in removable storage devices, make sure to save your MYOB Premier backup file in a format that allows you to understand when the backup is done.
In order to restore your MYOB Premier files, single user access is often required. Locate your file menu and select the restore option to be prompted to search for the backup file you want to restore with. Choose your file and open it. Choose the destination of your restored file and hit save to completely restore your company file. If your file has not been activated, MYOB Premier will prompt you for activation. If you don’t need to make any changes, it is okay to leave it as a read only file.
