Error: [Company File Name].QBW already exists. Are you sure you want to replace it?
When restoring a backup, a portable file, the following message is displayed:
[Company File Name].QBW already exists. Are you sure you want to replace it?
How to fix it
This message indicates that an existing QuickBooks company file is about to be overridden by the file that you are restoring. If you click
on this message, the file that was already in this location will be permanently deleted. This can result in loss of work that has been done in an existing file, and in some cases, that work will not be able to be recovered. You should use extreme care before saying
to this message.
If you are unsure what to do, it is recommened that you click
and and change the
slightly (by adding today's date to it, for example), then click
. This will avoid overwriting the existing company file.
