For the ‘To’ date range box, you need to pick the same day, or if you’re not sure about the day, run the report by the month or week. Click the ‘Refresh’ option, and the Audit Trail feature will show several transactions in the date range you chose.

Step 3 – Navigate the list of transactions and click the one twice that was removed. Record every item in the transaction in the audit trail.

Step 3 – Search for the latest backup copy saved on the system. The software asks you to select the position where it should find the backup file. Choose this location and click the ‘OK’ button. After finding the latest backup file, click on it twice, and then the ‘OK’ button again.

Step 4 – Select a location to store the backup copy of the file. Once you find the company file, the software prompts you to choose a location in which you wish to save the new file. You can select the flash drive or external drive’s default location you’re now using and click the ‘OK’ button.

Step 5 – Access the file and find the existence of the removed transactions. Input the transactions again that were entered between the time that they were deleted and the time that you saved them back. Re-enter several data that were entered succeeding the deleted transaction as required.
