As a small biz owner using Intuit's "ugly" Quickbooks app, it is very disappointing. There's enough to deal with the Quickbooks mac version, which by the way is almost completely anti-mac designed, to now add more crap by their automatic update.

I wish there was a better solution for accounting on the mac. I know there are other solutions, but QBs seems the most complete in an un-complete mac environment.

Intuit "get it together" !

Help for those hit

As an IT Consultant, I see lots of issues with lost data every day. Some are accidental, some are partial hardware failure, some are malicious co-workers, and others are bugs in software.

In all cases, I've had great success recovering the data by using FileSalvage from Subrosasoft.com. You can download a copy here:

SubrosaSoft.com FileSalvage for data recovery and undeleting lost files

The download will tell you what files it can recover, before you pay for it.
Please download to a drive that is NOT your user folder drive in this case, so as not to overwrite any of the files that are now missing.

Full Disclosure: I've been using Subrosasoft.com software for years as a consultant now and as a result have done (very limited) part time beta testing for them as well.

There is, it's called QuickBooks for Windows running in a VM :-) Which is exactly what I do, primarily because Assisted Payroll does not work on the Mac version of QuickBooks.
