Where is the history center in MT5? (Closed)

If you use Metaquotes demo-server, you have enough data for most symbols. Otherwise you have to find a broker who provides enough data. Data are automatically downloaded when you run the Strategy Tester.
Please see this topic for information about the Strategy Tester.

A must ! Before using it or asking any question : please read the Online Help (Also accessible by F1 on your MT5 platform)
As noted by erdah, SendNotification, SendMail, SendFTP don't work in Strategy Tester (of course).IndicatorParameters() doesn't work in StrategyTester.OnChartEvent() in Strategy Tester.New CopyTicks() function doesn't work on Strategy Tester.
Running optimization from command line : https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/13468
Announce of the launch : MQL5 Cloud Network launched.
Some useful topic about usage of the Cloud :

Work in progress, stay tuned !
What is MT5 equivalent to MT4 'History Center' export?

There is no direct method with MT5, no history center. You can do it with mql5 only, see this article for example...
To find those files - Open MT5, in menu: File - Open data Folder - bases - [name of the broker] (MetaQuotes-Demo in my case) - history.
