Hi,

I have a little problem.

On my Netbook WinXP MT5 saves everything in my installations folder.


On my Win7 computer my installations folder is D and it takes up to 22,9MB.

After I tested, downloaded and coded I checked the installations folder it is still 22,9MB.

After looking around I found in the Roaming folder a folder MetaQuotes which had 4GB on my drive C.

I dont want MT5 copying anything on my C drive.

So what I did.

  • uninstalled MT5

  • deleted the MetaQuote folde from C

  • deleted the registry with regedit

  • copied the MT5 folder from my netbook

  • startet the copied MT5 from my Win7 computer

it still saved the history on the roaming folder on C.


How do I change that?

I don't want any programm saving anything on my drive C?

Why does it work with the netbook and not with my Win7 computer?

Hi

Several instances of MT5 in Windows Vista and user directories
  • www.mql5.com
I would prefer to have all files stored in appropriate MT5 installation directory like I had in WinXP eg.
