View Full Version : Backup and Restore problem

07-30-2011, 06:57 AM
I have just built a new PC and I need to transfer everything from my laptop to the pc. I ran the backup and restore feature and it created a 4.2GB file. Windows said that you need windows 98/2000 to read this file because of its size.

Is there any way I can make smaller files so I can transfer them to my new PC?

If this isnt possible is there another way I can transfer all HH, settings, HUDs etc over to the new PC?

The error message makes no sense - W98 and 2000 are pretty old operating systems. Newer windows systems have no problems with files over 4GB as long as your computer is formatted with a NTFS filesystem. If you are using a USB Stick or a external HDD to transfer the file it must be NTFS formatted too.

If you want smaller files copy the config and reports subfolder of Holdemmanager from your old to the new computer and create a backup via pgadmin:
