Easy methods to remove the error message 6130 in QuickBooks

You cannot perform the company file tasks efficiently once QuickBooks gets influenced by this error. The easy techniques to remove the QB data file error are discussed below-

Solution 1- Move your company file back to its original location on your system

QuickBooks automatically creates folders in the C: drive to store its program files and data files. The financial data is automatically stored in the company files and the software accesses the files whenever you work on or update your financial data. You can run into this error if you move the company file to a different location which isn’t updated in QuickBooks. The software falls prey to issues when it cannot find the company file in the specified location and might even crash. You need to move the data file back to its default location using the following steps-

  1. Single-click on the search panel on the taskbar and type your company file name with a * mark at the beginning.
  2. Right-click the company file and select the Open file location option.
  3. Right-click the data file and click the Copy option.
  4. Go to C:Users\Public\PublicDocuments\Intuit\QuickBooksXX\CompanyFiles and Paste your company file.
  5. Open your QuickBooks and try accessing the data file from this location again.

If QB faces trouble accessing the file from its default location, move to the next solution.

Solution 2- Remove your QB DBSM account from your Windows

You might also face trouble hosting the company file on a multi-user network if the DBSM stops running in the background. This happens if the DBSM account gets damaged or the Windows firewall blocks its functions. You can easily remove the DBSM account using these steps-

  1. Open the control panel and go to the Accounts option.
  2. Click User Accounts in the next window and select your QuickBooksDataServiceUserXX in the list.
