I recently purchased a IMAC with QuickBooks MAC installed by the seller. My company file was imported from my PC using a thumb drive.
When trying to open Quickbooks on the MAC this morning no company info. was present. I had removed the Thumb drive over the weekend.
Suspecting what may have occurred I reinserted the thumb drive and tried again.
Company info. Was all there. Looking under help / product info. I see that the file location is listed as the thumb drive. I need to move this to my HD on the MAC.
I could drag and drop the file from the USB to my documents file on the MAC but am unsure if the MAC will look for them there or continue to look on the USB drive.
I found some Intuit sites mentioning to do a restore but their instructions are not clear at all. Also the Intuit site does not currently allow for search as it is down for repair. There is no restore button on QB MAC. Amazingly QB help on the MAC does not list any topics under restore.
I am getting the distinct impression that Intuit has purposely hobbled the QB MAC version so as not to offend MS. When you start making an export version for MAC you get a window that advise you to reconsider and continue to use Windows.
Any advice for moving my company file location from the thumb drive to the HD would be appreciated ( Also QB must know to look in the new location when opening.)
