Recover lost data with QuickBooks Auto Data Recovery

The Intuit Data Services team can often recover data in files that are damaged. However, it is often necessary to wait several days without QuickBooks for the team to recover the file. Auto Data Recovery was introduced in QuickBooks 2012 (and later) and QuickBooks Enterprise Solutions 13.0 R4 (and later), and may provide you with all or nearly all of your data right now. This solution should be used after all appropriate troubleshooting resources have been used.

Detailed instructions

Auto Data Recovery may help recover your data in one of two ways:

  • Recreate lost transactions using your current Transaction Log file and a copy of your Company file.
  • Recreate all but the last few hours of transactions with a copy of both your Company file and your Transaction Log file.

Follow the solutions in the order shown.

Note: The Auto Data Recovery is available in Pro, Premier, and Enterprise Solutions editions of QuickBooks at this time. The ADR file has a size limitation of 1.5Gbytes. If your backup file size is larger than 1.5Gbytes, an ADR file will not be created.
