Backing up data

There are three ways Rewind works to ensure your QuickBooks Online accounts are always backed up:

  • We run an automatic backup every night at 12am local time of new changes.
  • We run real-time, automatic backups while you work on your company file.
  • We offer you the ability to launch a manual backup whenever you need it.

Rewind is a set it and forget it system. We will send you a weekly summary email of how your backups have been updated.

Congratulations 🎉 You’ve taken a massive step towards securing your data and having peace of mind about your account(s) being protected from small mistakes or big disasters.
