Do you use MYOB?

Posted on 26 May 2015

Are you using MYOB in your business? Where is your data file located? Do you back it up regularly?

One of our clients recently experienced data loss with their MYOB system. This particular client uses us on an ad-hoc basis. Their understanding was that the MYOB data file was on the server, therefore, it was being backed up by the server backup system.

The PC that had MYOB loaded onto it had a hard drive failure. It was at this point that they realised that the MYOB data file was on the PC, not the server.

The hard drive had to be sent off to a data recovery specialist. The price to retrieve data was quoted at $700-$1200 with a 50% chance of recovery.

If you are running MYOB and are not sure where you data file is, or are just assuming it is on the server, please contact us and get it checked.

We don't want to see this happen again.

If you have any questions about this, please call me on 43370700 to discuss.
