How Can I Backup My Lightning Payroll Data?

 

Since Lightning Payroll is a desktop application, the data is safely stored in your own computer. We recommend you make yourself familiar with the backup features in the program.

Online backups are a great way to store an off-site, secure backup of your payroll information, with us. It is also the easiest way to pass data between two Lightning Payroll systems sharing the same subscription.

To create a backup file, click Tools >> Create backup. This saves an entire copy of your payroll data (for all companies) into one compressed file (.LPB file extension). These files can then be restored via Tools >> Restore backup.

Lightning Payroll can also make regular automatic backups to a designated folder under Settings >> Backups >> Backup your data automatically.

We recommend that you regularly place a backup on an external memory device in case your local hard drive fails.
