My system is downloading several days of depth data when I reload a chart. I have tried all the remedies suggested to make that stop but nothing works except making a new chartbook or symbol. Please help me stop these multiple day downloads. It shows a message that it is downloading several days. It does it when i go back and replay a chart.

Most likely it is not downloading data, but is loading the data from disk. What are the exact messages you are seeing? Or please give us a screenshot of what you are seeing.

It is downloading the last 7 days when I start a playback. The message is the standard message that runs at the startup of a playback. It’s the depth feature. I have turned it off but it still runs.

What you are seeing is a normal message stating that Depth data is being loaded due to the replay. If you have a DOM open or the Market Depth Historical Graph on the chart (or other studies that depend on the depth data), then when you start a replay it is going to load the depth data. You would need to ensure that any study or reference to the depth data is not on the chart when you start a replay in order to not get the depth to load.

You can also control the number of days of depth data that is loaded for the chart, in general. Refer to the following setting:
Chart Settings: Maximum Market Depth Data Days to Load (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Market Depth menu)
