How long will it take to repair my data?

Note: Whilst we endeavour to return your data within the current service level, the times are for guidance only and subject to change.


Can I restore a backup?

If you don't want to send your data in for repair, you can restore a backup of your data. You must ensure your data is error free after you restore it. We recommend you take a backup of your current data and then restore backups as far back as you can to find data which has no errors.

What happens when my data is repaired?

Once your data is repaired we'll email you the details of the repair.

If we remove any data we'll include full details on the email. This is so you can enter these transactions again, if required. Read more about how to enter the transactions again

Once you receive this email you can access the My uploads area of our website to download your fixed data and then restore this into your Sage Accounts software.

Note: If you are using Sage Accounts 2013 or above, before you restore your repaired data you must install the latest software updates. You can check for updates in Help > Check For Updates.


How do I check on the progress of my data repair?

You can check our current service levels on the Service levels tab. This also shows the oldest outstanding data set.

You can compare the time you uploaded your data against the oldest outstanding data set to estimate when your data will be available to download.


How do I create a Sage website login?

If you don't have a My Sage login, for information about how to create one, please refer to article 26607.
