Backup Quickbook data to a web site via FTP
Posted on 2006-07-04
This is somewhat of a two-part question, although the important part is the FTP question.
I want to backup QuickBooks data to a web site (or most likely a passworded sub-folder of the web site).
Can anyone recommend an FTP program where I could put an icon on a desktop, have someone click it, and that program automatically ftp the program from the computer to the web site? (Or another very, very easy way, as the person having to do the backup is not very computer literate at all).
And related to the above, is there any difference between the QuickBooks data file that you work on, and the file created when you go to QuickBooks's menu and click on "back up company."
On the second part, based on my experience, I say it is the same file, but someone else is trying to tell me the files are actually different. And it also matters as to where the FTP program will get the data to transfer and the number of steps the person doing the backup will have to go through.
