Move Desktop Version from faulty computer to new computer

Good evening,
my trusty computer is failing rapidly and I need to move my files to a new computer. But how does it work with Manager Desktop version. I guess I cannot download Manager onto the new computer and work with the backup files of Manager. I have tried this once and failed badly but I am not sure if I did everything right or whether it is not possible due to the One User feature on the Desktop version.


  • You need a backup of your data file, ideally regularly made before your computer started to fail. Make another back up now before your computer fails any more.

  • Then follow this guide Backup, restore and transfer businesses

  • You can restore several backups (which will import as businesses named as per the backup files name). You can the chose the best one (most recent not corrupted), renaming it as appropriate. See Name or rename a business
