Hi, I have a new 64bit Win7 PC and I'm just looking to move the data from my old PC. But there is quite a lot of old/redundant chartbooks in there and perhaps this is a good time for some housekeeping. Can I just move the chartbooks I currently use? What is "mandatory" to be moved? Thanks

For more information refer to help topic 15:
Transferring Sierra Chart Settings and Data From Existing Installation to New Installation

You only have to copy files over if you want to preserve your current settings.

As for Chartbooks, only copy the .cht files that you want to keep.

Thanks Max,

Which files/file types do I need to copy across to retain my global settings, graphics settings, toolbars etc etc?
