    Hello Ryan,

    Thank you for your post.

    If you want to transfer everything to another PC such as settings, templates, ect. the best way is to create a backup file and transfer this to restore on the other PC. Once your Backup file has been created it can be found in Documents-->NinjaTrader Backup.

    More information about creating a Backup and how to Restore can be found at the link I have provided below:

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

      Before reinstalling, I saved my workspaces, upon reinstalling with the same custom ninjascript (no errors on importing the script) , I do not have the specfiic bartype I used to have before. - under Strategies I cannot see it. What could be the problem.

        Please compile your indicators with the steps I have provided below.
        • Tools
        • Edit NinjaScript
        • Indicators
        • Select ADL
        • Click Ok
        • Within the code window please right mouse click-->Compile
        • X out of the window
        Please let me know if you then see your bar type available when creating a chart.

          Workspaces have little to do with the matter that you have raised. Have you copied the "CustomType,cs" file to the correct folder on the new installation?

          ...\My Documents\NinjaTrader 7\bin\Custom\Type

            I did the steps Christopher, but it did not bring back theat bar type which is
            __HarmonicBar, is specific to the strategy zio file I am loading. It loaded okay but
            this barttype is still missing. You mean by backing up and restoring would I have avoided this issue?

              This file should be saved as part of the BarsType.cs file. So I may test please send a note to Support [AT] NinjaTrader [DOT] com with "ATTN: Chris Jameson" in the subject line.

              In the message, please include the following:
              1.) A link to this forum thread.
              2.) Your zip file
