The Online Backup service is designed for use on the same computer that is used for backing up. Therefore, the Online Backup software should not be installed and run on more than one machine simultaneously using the same account number.
Note: The QuickBooks Online Backup service is not intended to be used as a file sharing service.
A patented incremental backup technology improves the backup service by reducing the length of data transfer after the initial backup. If these data increments come from two separate sources simultaneously, the data is at risk of being corrupted.
Restores can be initiated by using the QuickBooks Online Backup software or by using Web Restore
Select the option that best fits your situation.
Note: You can restore your data to multiple computers, but to back up any modified data, you must use another Online Backup account on the computer where you restored the data. The Web Restore feature is not intended as a file sharing service.
