Do attachments slow down QuickBooks? Wondering if having all the PDFs in QuickBooks will make it slower

Attaching documents in QuickBooks desktop shouldn’t affect the performance of the software. They are saved on the computer hard drive in a separate folder, and they are not included in a back up of the QuickBooks company file either so that backup file does not grow either. All attaching does in QuickBooks, is to enter a pointer to the hard drive location for the attachment folder.

If you experience slowness with QuickBooks, there may be other reasons like due to a large company file or network issues.

Here’s an article that’ll guide you:
