QuickBooks Client Machine can’t locate Server Company Data File is a networking error which is most often caused by the system not connected to the internet.
Users who host their company file on a server need constant network connection with the company data file. If the file cannot be located or connected to, an error is thrown by the software.

QuickBooks Cloud Hosting
If you have configured the server properly, and uploaded all your data successfully, then you are in for a great accounting experience with QuickBooks cloud hosting. This state of the art accounting technology will provide you with many perks including:
With QuickBooks Cloud Hosting, you can integrate many other third party addons. These addons provide additional features that are otherwise missing from QuickBooks. For instance, if you’re working with older versions of QuickBooks, you have no way to view data on multiple monitors. This can be changed by installing a simple addon.
Instead of purchasing additional hardware resources, you can simply contact your cloud hosting provider and ask them to scale your operations for more resources. This means that you can, at any time, get more memory, faster CPU speed and more storage space. All of this will be included in your subscription fee.
Backup and Restore
Without having a backup of the company file, you should never make changes to it. If the company file gets damaged for some reason, you will lose some of your accounting data. Instead opt in for cloud hosting where all your data will be backed up regularly. Whenever you want, you can restore a previous version of the company file and get back to work.
