How to copy the data/settings of an account to another account

Updated on 2011-04-30

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).

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
