      Hello Texasnomad,

      Thank you for your post.

      I have included the steps to reset the simulator below:

      To reset a simulation account go to Tools > Options > Simulator and follow the instructions below:

      1. Adjust the Account settings to the desired values
      2. Left mouse click on the Reset... button
      3. Select the account to reset using the Simulation account drop down menu
      4. Optionally enable Clear history to remove historical trade data and press the OK button

      For more information on the Simulator tab of the Options Menu please visit the following link: http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...ulator_tab.htm
      Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.

        My NT7 has become extremely slow, so I'm trying to reset my sim history. When I do, it just freezes NT. Is there a way to manually clear the history?

        I miss NT6 so much, so disappointed that we were forced to upgrade.

          • Press the "Repair DB" button
          • Press the "OK" button

          Once complete, please follow the instructions below to reset a simulation account.

            Thank you for the quick reply. I performed the "Repair DB". Then I tried to reset "Sim1" and NT just froze. After many minutes, I was forced to just kill NT.

            So, I re-opened NT, performed the repair again... then for good measure, I exited NT, re-opened, then performed the repair a second time. When I tried the second time, I get an long error message saying "failed to compact DB... database is larger than the configured maximum database size...etc"

            Is this a setting I can adjust?

            Also, I have old trading accounts in my history/db. Is there a way to clear that out (delete them completely)?

            I tried the "Reset DB", but that option also just freezes NT.

            Thanks for the help,
            Daniel

              Hello neoikon,

              Thank you for your response.

              Please rename your database with the following steps:
              • Shutdown NinjaTrader and Go to the Start Menu
              • Select My Documents--> NinjaTrader 7--> DB--> NinjaTrader.SDF.
              • Right click on NinjaTrader.SDF and select "Rename." *Name it "OLDNinjaTrader.SDF."
              • Then restart the software and NinjaTrader will create a fresh database file to use
              • Unfortunately the following items stored in the old database will be lost – ATM Strategy templates, Session templates, Instrument Lists / Custom Instruments and historical trade execution data

              To prevent running into situations where you can potentially lose important data, we advise to run regular backups via our inbuild backup feature in NinjaTrader - http://www.ninjatrader.com/support/h...up_archive.htm

              Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
