Greetings, I can understand your frustration regarding this issue. I will make sure that you get rid of this error. QuickBooks error -6000, -301 is generally caused due to the QuickBooks desktop being unable to communicate or open the path that has been specified to open the QuickBooks file database.

The following are the reasons that contribute towards the occurrence of QuickBooks error -6000, -301:

    1. Damaged file or Corrupted data file on single or multiple locations. They usually lie in the main location. The following could be the files in question:



    • ND files.


    • The Transaction Logfiles.


    • The Data Source Name files.



    1. The location where you have kept the file would not be accessible which would create the issue to open the QuickBooks data file


    1. You could have the Encrypted Software which again is not providing the two access and hence, QuickBooks giving the QuickBooks Error 6000 301. This encrypted software would block the incoming and outgoing work progress.
