The QuickBooks company file can get damaged due to various reasons. The file has an extension of QBW and is saved according to the preferences of user. This file contains all the accounting data that users input into QuickBooks.
Apart from this file, a separate configuration file is also created in the same directory. This file saves all the preferences of multiple users that have been created in QuickBooks . Both of these files are important, but as you can guess, the company file is infinitely more important.
How Did the Company File Get Damaged?
There are numerous reasons for the same, most common of them being:
- QuickBooks crashes unexpectedly
- Windows shuts down unexpectedly
- Malicious software
All of these are the root cause of a damage to the company file.
Whenever there is data being saved to QuickBooks company file, the process should not be terminated. Terminating the process while the data is being saved or altered can damage part of the company file.
This can happen only if QuickBooks crashes unexpectedly or your system shuts down. Both of these cases are heavily recorded by our QuickBooks technical assistance team.
How Can Malicious Software Affect the Company File?
There are many different types of malicious software including:
Viruses and malware can easily make changes to the structure of the file, hence damaging it permanently. Ransomwares on the other hand, simply encrypt the company file.
The encryption key is only known to the hacker and hence the user cannot access the company file without decrypting it. Ransomware have caused some serious problems for corporations and have become the medium through which hackers are blackmailing organizations.

QuickBooks Company File Issues
