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.

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.
