How to Repair and Restore Corrupted QuickBooks Database?

QuickBooks is a series of accounting tools, designed and marketed by the Intuit Inc. It is used by businesses for most of the financially-related processes. It is very easy to use and doesn’t require you to understand the standard account methods, such as double-entry bookkeeping. The traditional/custom database format, which is used by QuickBooks application, is QBW file. The database file is quite resilient and generally requires to be rebuilt, if it faces any kind of problem. QuickBooks has a simple inbuilt utility to fix the corruption. However, this utility is not too powerful to handle all types of corruptions and thus put you in need of Intuit QuickBooks recovery using commercial applications.

The absence of resilience property of QuickBooks database makes it difficult to determine the cause of corruption. In fact, several times you see that the corruption errors are reported after too long time. Using the QuickBooks application in multi-user environment generally causes errors if one or more users are disconnected. Because QuickBooks does not perform absolute scan of database file unless you run the Rebuild or Verify tools, no errors are encountered until you try to access damaged data.

The QBW file or QuickBooks database corruption is generally indicated by various error messages. The error message may also tell you the cause of this behavior. One of the most frequent error messages is as given below:

“An error occurred when QuickBooks tried to create, open, or use the company file. Please try again.
If the problem persists, contact Intuit Technical Support and provide them with the following error codes: (-6150, -1006).”

In order to fix corrupt QuickBooks file in such situations, you can use the inbuilt utility of QuickBooks application. To verify the corrupt QBW file, go through the underwritten steps:

• Click the File menu and then select “Close Company/Logoff” option.
• Go to File menu again, click Utilities, and then select Verify Data option.
• Select the problem QuickBooks database from hard drive.

If the above method does not work, you need to go for commercial applications to ensure absolute and quick Intuit recovery.

The Intuit repair applications are powerful enough to carry out in-depth scan of entire QBW file and restore all inaccessible data from it. They do not demand sound and prior technical skills to repair the database, as of their interactive graphical user interface.

QuickBooks recovery software is a most efficient and powerful utility to ensure perfect recovery of damaged QBW file. The software works well with QuickBooks® database files created in QuickBooks® versions 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and 2007.
