    Which Files do I need to backup/copy to move to a New Computer?

    Yeah.

    I want to move my NT files (Workspaces, charts, indicators, ect) to a new computer. What files do I need to copy to move to a new computer? And what is the best way to do it?

    Thanks

    Hello BottomShark77,

    Thank you for your post.

    To transfer all of your connection settings, workspaces, templates, and custom NinjaScripts to the new PC, I would recommend creating a backup in the original PC, and then transfer that file to your other PC then restoring settings after installing NinjaTrader. You can use a flash drive to transfer the backup file from one computer to the next.

    Please follow these steps to create a Backup Archive:

    1. Disconnect from all connectivity providers (if connected) and from within the Control Center window select the File menu. Then select the menu Utilities and the menu item Backup...

    2. The "Backup NinjaTrader" dialog window will appear

    3. Select the items you wish to back up

    4. Press the "Run Backup" button


    To restore, transfer the backup file to the new computer you just installed NinjaTrader on and go the control center > File > Utilities > Restore > Select the backup file.

    Below I have provided a link to the Backup and Restore section of our help guide.
