How Can This Problem Be Resolved?

You will have to create a portable copy of the data file. It is an effective way to deal with the ‘slow-down’ issue. When a portable copy is created, it flushes down the transaction log and you will get a clean slate to start with. This eventually helps in speeding up your data file connectivity provided that you have no general QuickBooks online problems with the firewall or networking.


Creating A Portable Copy Of The Data File

  • First, log out everyone from the QuickBooks account. That is; exit from multi-user mode.
  • Switch the account to single-user mode.
  • Go to the data file and click Create Copy.
  • Now you will be asked – What type of file do you want to save? Select Portable company file and proceed.
  • Click Save from the drop-down and select Desktop.
  • Finally, Save and Click Ok.

The portable copy of the data file you created will be located on the Desktop. The next procedure will be to re-establish the portable copy to its original position. Consider the following steps;

  • Open the file and click on Open or Restore Company File.
  • Opt for Restore Portable File and hit Next.
  • Browse the portable copy you created from the desktop and open it.
  • Now you will be asked – Where Do You Want To Restore The File window? Before clicking Next, read the warning considering the change in the file name.
  • Click Save from the drop-down and select your desired location (you will find the location on the server hosting the QuickBooks data file).
  • Rename your file and Save.

NOTE: Renaming your portable copy is necessary else it will overwrite the existing file.
