What causes QuickBooks Automatic Backup Not Working Error?

  • June 21, 2023 6:13 PM EDT

    The QuickBooks Automatic Backup Not Working error can occur due to various reasons. Here are some common causes for this error:

    1. Backup settings not configured properly: If the backup settings in QuickBooks are not set up correctly, it can lead to issues with the automatic backup feature. This includes selecting the wrong backup location, incorrect scheduling, or not enabling automatic backups at all.

    2. Insufficient disk space: If there is not enough disk space available on the designated backup location, QuickBooks may fail to perform automatic backups. Ensure that the destination drive or folder has enough free space to accommodate the backup file.

    3. Backup file in use or locked: If the backup file is already open or being used by another process or program, QuickBooks may not be able to create a new backup. Make sure that no other instances of QuickBooks or third-party applications are accessing the backup file.

    • The improper setup of scheduled backups in QuickBooks may lead to this QuickBooks error.


    • The outdated QuickBooks Desktop application is one of the reasons automatic backup stops working.
