Can someone teach me how to rebuild data in QuickBooks?

I have been working on the QuickBooks desktop for over a year now and whenever I try to create a backup of my company data into a small thumb drive it always checks for the integrity and consistency of the data. So far, I’ve been able to successfully rebuild data if I come across some errors while creating the backup without any issues. However, today when I tried to run the same procedure, I received over a thousand error messages and I have already tried to rebuild the data but they are not fixed. I do not want to lose anything because I did not create a backup for them since the last month. I tried to learn how to rebuild data in QuickBooks on the internet but was unable any relevant information. I was definitely doing something wrong and I want to know how to rebuild data in QuickBooks. Can someone please help me resolve this issue?

Greetings, thank you for bringing this issue to our attention. I will be glad to help you but I must tell you that rebuilding the data every time when you receive errors will affect your data and you might start experiencing linking issues.

There are several factors that can contribute to the occurrence of data errors in QuickBooks. The following are some of the possible causes that can lead to this error:

    • If you are using the QuickBooks in a Multi-user, it could be possible that because of internal issues of Windows and network, the data has not been saved properly and are experiencing the data linking issues.


    • QuickBooks is a sensitive business application and if the user is not properly saving the information then they receive such error messages.


    • This kind of error may also affect your system if a user has closed their QuickBooks software in the wrong way.


    • QuickBooks data errors also occur if there were sudden electricity outage because of bad weather and data has not been saved properly before the computer shut off.
