There are several reasons as to why someone would like to copy the data & settings of an account. You can store this data for backup purposes, associate it with another account, transfer it to another computer...
- Browse QuantShare directory. It usually looks like: C:\Program Files\CTrading\QuantShare
- Data is stored in the "Database" directory. Inside it, each account has its own directory.
- To copy account data/settings, simply copy the appropriate directory (The directory name is the same as the account name).
- browse the new account directory and copy the content of the previous directory into the new one.
I want to transfer data from account USA to account USA Copy1. Within QuantShare, I have created an empty account named "USA Copy1".
I copy the content of (C:\Program Files\CTrading\QuantShare\USA) to (C:\Program Files\CTrading\QuantShare\USA Copy1).
