Intuit Data Protect is a new extra-cost service introduced with QuickBooks 2011 and Enterprise Solutions 11.0 that allows users to back up data to Intuit’s secure servers. It replaces QuickBooks Online Back-up.
Current users of Online Back-up who upgrade to QuickBooks 2011 can continue to use that service or can cancel and sign up for Intuit Data Protect. New subscriptions will only be offered to Intuit Data Protect.
Online Back-up has storage-based limits of 5, 25, and 75 Gb. Intuit Data Protect offers 2 simplified tiers:
- Backup QuickBooks company file data for $4.95/month
- Backup any data on a PC up to a 100 Gb limit for $9.95/month
Users can keep up to 45 days of backups, but all backups over the 45 day period count toward the 100 Gb limit when backing up any data on a PC.
