Hi,

Does anyone know why any of my expert advisor logs older than 7 days get deleted?

Is there any way to tell MT4 not to delete the logs?  

I had not noticed this until recently. 

 

Thanks in advance to anybody who replies.

  1. Because that is what it does. Depending on the code some can get GB large.
  2. No. Why would you want a six months of old logs taking all the space on your drive?
  3. Save them elsewhere if you really need them.

Oh, I don't want 6 months worth of logs certainly, but at least 2-4 weeks worth would be good.

Every 7 days is a tad too quick, I've lost a whole week's worth of data because of this without realizing I have to manually copy the files to save them.
