    Unable to back up data

    Hi,

    I have set up my chart data to back up every Friday evening. I recently restarted using NinjaTrader after a few month's break. The data back up has now stopped working.

    It starts backing up and initially shows that it would take say 20 minutes to complete. However, the time remaining gradually increases and shows several hours to complete. I have tried waiting for over a day and it still does not complete data back up.

    How can this be fixed? Appreciate your help.

    Hello,

    This may indicate a large amount of Historical data.

    Does your broker / data provider provide you with historical data?

    If so, I recommend you do not backup historical data to keep your backup small.

    To do this:
    • Disconnect from any connections
    • Click File -> Utilities -> Backup...
    • Uncheck Historical chart data
    • Click Run Backup

      Hi,

      My broker provides historical data for just 6 months. I have about 3.5 years of data which I want to preserve. What is the other way of backing up data for future use and restoring it when needed?

        Hello,

        A copy of the tick, minute and day folders under the Documents > NinjaTrader 7 > DB folder could be created.
