Restore custom templates and forms missing from a restored backup

You have restored a backup copy of your company file on a new computer and the Loan Manager or Fixed Asset Manager are missing information, your customized forms are missing the logo or layouts, and other related files or data do not appear to be updated.

In QuickBooks Desktop, the backup process includes files that are related to the company .qbw file, and are stored in a special folder during the restore process. To restore those related files, follow the steps in the Detailed instructions section

NOTE: These related files are not automatically restored to prevent the possibility of overwriting other existing related files that you may want to keep.

Detailed instructions

To bring these files into the restored company file, you must manually copy them into the appropriate directory and overwrite any existing default templates and files created by other users, as appropriate.

NOTE: Only the files that existed on the computer where the backup was created can be restored.

 

To restore these related files to your restored company file:

  1. On the system where you restored the backup file, search for folder called Restored_CompanyName_Files. Where CompanyName is the name of your company file. NOTE: This folder should be located in the same directory as your restored .qbw file.
  2. Copy the file or files you wish to restore and paste to the appropriate location (see the list below).

    The Restored_[Company Name]_Files folder can contain any of the following files that need to be copied manually:

    • Copy the QuickBooks Letters and Templates file to:C:\Program Data\Intuit\QuickBooks [version]\QuickBooks Letter Templates
       
    • Copy the Printer Setting (PrintEng.ini, wpr.ini, and QBPrint.qbp) files to: C:\Program Data\Intuit\QuickBooks [version]
       
    • Copy the Spell Checker (spell.ini and UserDictionary.tlx) files to: C:\Program Data\Intuit\QuickBooks [version]
       
    • Copy the Financial Statement Designer (FSD clients) files to: C:\Program Data\Intuit\Intuit\QuickBooks\Company Files\FSD\Clients
       
    • Copy the Financial Statement Designer (FSD data) files to: C:\Program Data\Intuit\QuickBooks [version]\Components\FSD\Data

      NOTE: The path for above file files while working with Windows10/8/7 and Vista is C:\Program Data\Intuit\
       
    • Copy the Cash Flow Projector (.cfp) file to: the same directory as [Company Name].qbw
       
    • Copy the Business Planner (.bpw) file to: the same directory as [Company Name].qbw
       
    • Copy the Loan Manager (.lmr) files to: the same directory as [Company Name].qbw
