Quickbooks hangs on backup at 99% and I cannot verify or rebuild data file, I have backed up the file for now but I can't rebuild or verify the data file. I can open the file and work in it, however I cannot perform these other functions. Has anyone had this issue before? I foun an artilce on Intuit's website but is states to resolve this issue I need to rebuild the data file, I cannot do this since I have to back up the file first and it will not let me.

    Check your antivirus ... maybe Norton perhaps...
    There might be some script blocking going on, or on-access scanning that is mucking up the process.

    I moved the Data file to another computer and opened up the file, I was then able to rebuild the data file and then I was able to backup the file. I removed QuickBooks Enterprise 7.0 from the server rebooted and then re-installed it. That resovled my issue, thanks for all the help.
