Hi Guys

I have installed my Metatrader 4 on an external hard drive. This allows me to work on my home or work PC. The platform is working, but it doesn't transfer my templates and open charts from one PC to the next. Is there a setting I need to change? How can I get my personal settings to move with the hard drive?

I guess you have to start (always) the terminal in "/portable" mode. Google to learn more.

Thanks Guys

/Portable seems to work. Will do a full test later.

If you're moving between computers, you may find it helpful to change the drive letter of your external hard drive to something out the way (as in towards the end of the alphabet).

That way you don't need to keep editing your shortcuts with the portable flag.

For example, assign "M" as the drive letter for your external hard drive on both your home and work PCs. You can do this in Disk Management (Windows).

Then you can create a shortcut to M:\<YOUR MT4 FOLDER>\terminal.exe /portable
