Hello, i had an error that said my account file was corrupt. I was then prompt to create a new file. I backed up the old QS folder and then had the system create a new one. I then reloaded my account however my custom databases are missing. I see the files in the databases/account/ folder but the app cant see them.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

When the account file is corrupted and you click on "Yes", that file will be regenerated. It does not touch or remove any of your account data or databases.

Please first double check that the account refers to the same folder as the old one (Accounts -> Change Account -> Update Account).

You can also force QuantShare to read these databases again by creating a new database with the same name (Data -> Edit Databases" -> "Manage Databases")

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.
