How to backup your databases (EOD, Intraday, Tick and Custom) and trading items
Updated on 2011-07-23 04:49:47
Databases (EOD, Intraday, Tick and Custom), application settings and trading items are saved in a directory under the "Database" directory of QuantShare.
Each account has its own databases and data settings, although it is possible to create different accounts that reference the same databases. This can be done by updating each account (Change Account), selecting "Update account" then specifying the same "Database Folder".
In order to backup your databases:
- Select "Change Account" then "Update Account"
- Get the directory specified next to "Database folder"
- All necessary files are stored under this directory. You can save or compress this directory to backup it.
To restore a backup, simply copy the previously saved files to an existing directory.
You can also copy these files to a new directory then create an account and reference this directory in "Update Account" panel.
