QuickBooks Online Backup and its associated web sites have security measures in place to protect the access, loss, misuse and alteration of data and personally identifiable information under its control. It employs sophisticated security measures and uses encryption technology similar to what financial institutions and US Government use.
This article covers the following Scenarios. For QuickBooks Online backup How Do I's, visit QuickBooks Online Backup (OLBU)
Scenario: You are getting the message Online backup account has been blocked when you try to backup your files.
Scenario: You are getting the message Error: Backup ran out of time... when doing scheduled or manual backup.
When new data is added to a file, the software application usually places the new data at the end of the file. When the file is compressed, compacted or rebuilt, the file structure is distinctly modified. Online Backup expects the changes/additions to be stored at the end of the file and when the application identifies that the file has been drastically modified during the compression process, it must re-scan the file byte-by-byte instead of only looking for changes appended to the end of the file.
This byte-by-byte scan can take some time depending on the nature of the changes and the size of the file, and is most commonly seen with database applications such as Microsoft Outlook(R), QuickBooks, Quicken, Microsoft Access(R), etc.
