You then have two options:
- Search by Company Name
- Search by local, removable or network drives.
Search results may include Company, Backup and Portable file types. You can see the file type in the second column and the date modified in the next column. You probably want to open the latest company file.
Once you open this file, you may want to check and see if your most recent transactions have been entered.
Then, crisis over, you can continue working.
