VMware Horizon: Transfer Files to the Cloud from Your Local Desktop

Matt will walk you through the process to transfer a QuickBooks backup file — or any other file — from your local machine to the cloud. VMware Horizon makes the process super easy.

My name is Matt Mulcahy.

Today, we’re going to walk through

transferring your QuickBooks company file to the cloud.

First thing you’ll need to do is open the full VDI or published QuickBooks.

For this demo, we’re going to go into the VDI.

Once you’re loaded into the VDI, you’ll want to click on this gray

fly-out tab that brings up an additional menu

and you’ll click the little icon at the top here with the arrows

going up and down to open the file transfer panel.

From here, you’ll choose a file that’s on your local machine

and select the QuickBooks backup file.

I have one on my desktop here that I’m going to transfer and click open.

Once this backup file is transferred, please alert your Onboarding Technician

and they will ensure

you are able to open it in QuickBooks and verify the file integrity.

Any other files can be uploaded to the cloud

this way as well, and it’s a great way to help forklift some of the data

from your local on-premise environment up to your cloud workspace.

If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate

to reach out to: [email protected].
