Current setup: Windows 10 computer where Quickbooks company files are stored on the C drive. This computer runs the quickbooks database manager software. All other data has long been moved off this Win 10 computer and onto the Synology into shared folders; Quickbooks company files is the only thing that remains. This computer has been giving me issues when you reboot it hangs, and I usually need to get someone to go onsite to force power it down and bring it back up again.

I've searched high and dry whether you can put the Quickbooks company files into a shared folder of a NAS. I've seen many articles, including by Intuit, that placing the files on a NAS isn't supported, but I believe these discussion were more geared to Multi User environments. We do not open any company file more than once, and it's just a single user.

Has anyone else done this or seen a working use case without issue?

Thanks

Not that I have done it or used it before, but can’t you test that with a sample “db” or how ever the platform works? If it’s a single user case guess that’s pretty clear it shouldn’t be an issue.

I'm sure it will work upon first time, my concern is a year's worth of use what happens? Considering (my guess) the file is more in line of a database file, is there risk of corruption? My assumption in our use case is the risk is low because we will not have multi users going into the file. The NAS & pc's are on battery backup and multiple backup operations take place. Just looking to see if anyone has had a real use case with this.

In all fairness it is also quite possible due to the amount of warranty claims that I was put on a list...
