Hi guys, 

I need to download a lot of data on my metatrader 4 using TickStory lite for backtesting, but my free space on C:  is small than the amount of data need to download. Then need to move the datafolder to another partition.

How can I move the datafolder to D: or anoter disk with more free space?

  1. Normally it goes in the user's appData directory.
  2. Or, you install the terminal else where and start it in /portable mode, the data goes in the install directory.
  3. Or you move the directory elsewhere and use
    mklink/j
    to create a directory junction to redirect to it.

Make that... works for me.

Firstly close all the MetaTraders versions.

Use this commands in "cmd" windows:

robocopy /E /MOVE "C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes" "F:\MetaQuotes"
mklink /j "C:\Users\<USER>\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes" "F:\MetaQuotes"

<USER> The username of your windows.

"C:\" It's the current windows drive installed.

"F:\MetaQuotes" It's new path.
