  • Go to Tally 8.1 folder and locate a file migration tool.
  • Start the tool by specifying the location of Tallt7.2 data which would be in c:\tally\data folder where your 7.2 version was installed.
  • Select a company and migrate. After whole process has ended it would make another fold in same location but with different name.
  • You can identify the folder easily as it would contain 4 numbers. e.g. Your existing folder would be 001 and new folder would be 0001.
