  3. Select Next.
  4. Select the restore method:
    • Overwrite existing company data or An Existing Company
    • Create a new company using the restored data or A New Company
      Note: Select A New Company to restore the backup to a new folder. This will not overwrite your existing data
  5. Select Next.
  6. Select restore options:
    • Company Data
    • Customized Forms
    • Web Transactions
  7. Select Next.
  8. Verify the restore options and select Finish.
  9. The company will open once the restore completes.
Note: If you want to change the company name because you restored to a new folder, select Maintain, and then select Company Information.

Note: To restore a backup from a previous version of Sage 50, you may have to convert the data. See How do I convert my company data?.
