Hi folks. I had a bad thing happen to me yesterday - I had a computer CRASH. Haven't had one of those in years! It seems a rather nasty worm got into the works. It's ok now, but I was wondering what specific files I should regularly backup if I ever had to start all over again by reinstalling SC and hopefully NOT having to re-construct and re-configure all of those lovely chartbooks that I have so carefully crafted over the years. Thanks for any input - Rick

we recommend backing up the entire Sierra Chart folder. To save space you can exclude files with a "scid" file extension.
