A client of mine has a Quickbooks 7 company file (QBW) which is failing validation, which is preventing QBB backups, since validation precedes backup. After the failed validation, rebuild is recommended and executed, seemingly successfully, after which validation again fails. This suggest to me that there may be corruption in the QBW file. Is this the case? And if so, what can i do to fix the company file?
Also, I have a question about valid Quickbooks backups. With the Quickbooks backup (QBB) failing now, I'm backing up with Ghost v14 the QBW and transaction log files with the hope that these are absolutely valid backups, and will not in any way impaire the validity or use of the files if used to restore the company. Is this correct?
Th client is running XP, fully patched.
Thanks tons for your insights.
