    Need to merge data from 2 installations v7

    I installed the latest version 7.1.4 on second PC. I only copied my workspaces, which loaded fine from ver 7.1.0. After trading I see that the trading history only goes back as far as the new installation. I still have old installation on first PC, so how do I merge the data from the 2 installations?

    Hello Jay Trades

    Thank you for your post.

    The historical trade data is logged in the NinjaTrader database file. From your description, it sounds as though only the workspace files were migrated.

    If you are looking to transfer your settings, data, templates, etc over to another PC, check out the following

    In order to move your NinjaTrader settings from one PC to another, you will want to create a backup on the 1st PC, transfer the backup file to the 2nd PC, & then run the NinjaTrader restore utility. Please see the following steps for completing this process:

    Creating a backup archive:
    1. Disconnect from all connectivity providers (if connected) and from within the Control Center window select the menu File > Utilities > Backup...
    2. The "Backup NinjaTrader" dialog window will appear
    3. Select the items you wish to back up
    4. Press the "Run Backup" button

    You will transfer this backup file to your 2nd PC and then run the NinjaTrader restore utility. (You can transfer this file with a flash/jump drive)

    To restore a backup archive:
    1. From within the Control Center window select the menu File > Utilities > Restore...
    2. Select the backup archive to restore from the "Restore" file dialog window
    3. Press the "Open" button

      I can do that. But it sounds like that would wipe out my few trades on the second PC installation. Is that right?

        Hello Jay Trades,

        You could insert these few trades manually in the Executions tab – right-click & select ‘Add…’

        Let me know if this does not resolve the issue.

          Chip,

          Yes I need to add 6 trades from PC 2 to PC 1 and then run a back up on PC 1, and then restore onto PC 2.

          At least that's what I think you're saying. Am I right?

            Hello Jay

            I believe that will work for what you are trying to accomplish. Let me know if that’s not the case.

            For additional detail on this method, see “How to add executions” section from the following:
