Why Xero data backup?


Frequently asked questions

Does Xero recommend using a third-party backup provider? 

Xero’s Services Agreement states: “You must maintain copies of all data inputted into the service. Xero expressly excludes liability for any data loss no matter how caused.”

Xero will do an excellent job of ensuring your data is safe and available, but it can’t help if the problem originated from within your organisation. For Example: 

  • A new employee has deleted data in error or imported transactions wrongly. 
  • A disgruntled employee has wreaked havoc, sabotaging files and deleting contacts,  
  • An app you were trialling has pushed unwanted data into your accounting records or drastically altered contact details, records about deals or company data. 
  1. Setup
    • Authorise with a few clicks, and your backups will begin. 
    • Set your backups to run as often as you want with no work interruptions. 
    • Retain a history for as long as you or the client wishes. 
  2. Reporting and admin
    • View your key accounting reports at a historical point in time. 
    • Download a copy of all transactions for a particular year. 
    • Get a copy of all attachments, including receipts within Xero. 
  3. Recovery
    • One click is all it takes to restore backups. 
    • Download files as many times as you want – there’s no charge. 
    • Stream from the cloud while the recovery completes in the background. 
  4. Security
    • Only you have access to the encryption key, so unlike other online backup services, only you can decrypt and recover your backup data.
