I own a small business of hardware and to manage various financial accounting data for my organization, I use Intuit’s QuickBooks 2008 software. However, another day I encountered a very strange problem related to QuickBooks corruption but I am really very thankful to one of my friends by whom I got to know about third-party QuickBooks repair software. By using this software, I repaired my QuickBooks file and recovered my entire data saved on this file. Let me narrate the entire episode in detail.
It is my habit to maintain the backup of my QuickBooks files on flash drive regularly. Another day while I was trying to restore QuickBooks from some files, which were saved on my flash drive, encountered the following error message:
“Error 6189: “QuickBooks is unable to determine the cause of the error on the local file“
However, I tried restoring those files for one more time but encountered the same issue again. Worried! I called one of my friends who has a good knowledge about QuickBooks and suggests me various solutions related to QuickBooks issues if occur. He told me that aforementioned issue occurs when we try to open a QuickBooks file in an older version of QuickBooks but nothing like this was with me as I have been using QuickBooks 2008 since starting of my business. Perplexed! I told him that I could not afford losing those QuickBooks files.
He clamed me down by saying that he would for sure find some solution and to rectify that issue he came to me at my house. When he came, he inspected the issue and to resolve the problem he searched over the Internet and found that sometime due to the corruption of QuickBooks files also this issue occurs. To rectify this issue, QuickBooks recommends using its ‘Connection Diagnostic’ tool. After downloading this tool of QuickBooks, we used it but with no luck.
At that situation, my friend started searching over the internet for some third-party QuickBooks repair software. After going through various blogs, sites, and forums, we found one of the awards winning and highly recommended third-party software that is Stellar Phoenix Recovery for QuickBooks. However, initially we downloaded the free demo version of this tool. The demo version of the software provides preview of all the contents of corrupt QuickBooks file.
Therefore, getting fully satisfied by the features and functionalities of the software, we purchased its license, which bears a reasonable cost and recovered my precious QuickBooks files. Additionally I would like to mention here that the software is one of the non-destructive tools that not only repairs corrupt or inaccessible QuickBooks files but also recovers data related to customers, employees, vendors, and service.
