This file format is used by QuickBooks 2014 to generate a backup copy of the user's company file. This copy is stored in a DMG file, which is generated by QuickBooks 2014 upon completing a backup operation.QuickBooks 2014 is an accounting program. These DMG files are similar to virtual disks and contain backup data. Each backup operation performed by QuickBooks 2014 creates a .2014 file, which is a copy of the user's data that's stored in the company file.These 2014 files can be opened by using QuickBooks 2014. Before trying to open these .2014 files, it first needs to be extracted from the DMG file, then placed in a directory outside the extracted DMG folder. Otherwise, QuickBooks 2014 will return an error.
