Backup problems Year end wizard

Backup problems Year end wizard

(OP)
I am trying to backup a PT2008 company and it gets 99% done when it forces Peachtree to close. The backup file created is actually able to be restored without corruption but I still can't use the year end wizard to change the accounting period. Any suggestions?

RE: Backup problems Year end wizard

Try deleting the following files in the company's data folder if you do not use the Action Item System in Peachtree:
Alarm.dat
Alert.dat
Eventlog.dat

When you open your Peachtree company, you will be asked if want to create a new Alarm or a new Alert or a new Eventlog.
Say "Yes" and create new files.
Then, try to close the year.
