Using the QuickBooks Online Backup Service

For an added measure of security, you can take advantage of Intuit's online data backup service. This fee-based service provides an offsite location for your backup. The online backup basic service costs $99.95 per year. The Intuit backup service includes an AES-128-bit encryption, which is the same encryption standard used by the U.S. government. Files that have been backed up online can be downloaded at any time and onto the same or a different computer from which they were backed up. Intuit offers a free 30-day trial of this service.
