    Hello,

    Thank you for posting to the forums.

    The following instructions will explain how to backup your NinjaTrader 8 files to a second computer.

    Please note that the following list is the items you can choose to include or exclude from your backup (Configuration files, Database, Historical Chart Data, Log and Trace files, Market Replay Data, NinjaScript Files, Templates, Workspaces). Many users exclude the historical chart data, log and trace files, and Market Replay data to reduce the file size.

    Also, the new computer will have a different Machine ID and will result in any passwords for account connections being removed along with the NinjaTrader License key being removed. For security purposes all account connections will need to have the username and password re-entered and the License key will also need to be re-entered.

    You will also need to contact any 3rd party vendors and let them know that your machine ID has changed. You can locate the new machine ID by the following:
    • Control Center > Help > About... (e.g. Machine ID: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX)

    Follow these steps:
    • Open NinjaTrader 8 on the computer you wish to backup from and disconnect from any open connections if applicable.
    • Go to Tools > Export > Backup File
    • Select which items you would like to backup and click 'Export'
    • Email or Save the file to an external storage device. The file can be found in the Documents\NinjaTrader 8 Backup folder on your PC.

    Open NinjaTrader 8 on the computer you wish to restore to and disconnect from any open connections if applicable.
    • Open the email with the backup file or connect the external storage and save the backup file to a destination of your choosing (I recommend the desktop as it is easy to find).
    • Go to Tools > Import > Backup File...
    • Select the backup file you created from the location you saved it

    I have also attached the Help Guide section regarding backup and restore below:

        Hello punkiy2111,

        Thank you for your update.

        Drawing objects are saved on open charts when the workspace(s) are saved. So to preserve these only you would just want to ensure workspaces was checked. To make sure these are able to be recalled in general, I suggest creating regular backups. This would be the best method to ensure the drawings can be restored in case of unexpected shutdowns or situations where you cannot save. Reminders to run the backups can also be enabled (Tools > Export > Backup File...).

        See the below section of our help guide for more on Backup / Restore...

            Hello Alpha2Omega007,

            The date and prices would all relate to the original contract which you drew them on so they may no longer be visible after changing contracts. You can use the drawing objects menu to see applied objects in the chart if you need to move their dates to a closer to the present date.
