Today I had a slight crisis…I had to reinstall QuickBooks 2006 on a new computer and restore the backup file that QuickBooks creates with the “.qbb” extension.
Everything worked great, and it was literally as simple as popping in the QuickBooks CD, installing the software, launching the program, and then following the steps from the “File->Restore menu”.
However, once I went into the Loan Manager to make a loan payment, I discovered none of the loans that I setup were there. I learned the hard way that the Loan Manager data is not backed up with your QuickBooks backup file. I really did not want to re-key in my loans, figure out what payment number I was on, determine principal and interest components, etc…Needless to say I was a little sad and looked for a way to get my Loan Manager data back.
