I have several years worth of data; backups now take 2 diskettes. I would love to get rid of data from past years and keep just current info.

Is there any way to do this?

Have you tried "condensing" the file?

Two diskettes of data is not very much...it is not going to tax QuickBooks' capacities to have as many years' of data in it as you do.

Relying on diskette backups is notorious, however. You might want to consider regularly copying your company data file to a zip drive, second hard drive, or CD instead.
