My client has been using QuickBooks Pro for well over 10 years. They upgrade every few years however the file size is getting very large. They do not want to switch to another program and do not want to switch to QuickBooks Online.
I was under the impression that the newest versions of QuickBooks allows you to purge old data or allows you to reduce the file size.
What should I do?

You may want to consider using the Condense Data feature in QuickBooks (File, Utilities, Condense Data from the menu)- it will let you remove the old data as well as the old list items – vendors, customers, accounts, etc. which you haven’t touched in years.
