QB Issue Resolution:
You don’t want to work from a USB or external device.
The USB is great for moving a Backup (.qbb) file from one computer to another. You Copy that onto the computer so that it is Local = on the harddrive.
You use the Restore function in QB, not the Open button. Now the QB program makes an uncompressed data file (.qbw) from that .qbb file.
External devices are not really fast enough for this relational database and/or pause (sleep) during updates, which results in the error “Connection to the data file has been lost” which leads to data file corruption.
