ok did i screw up? i backed up my data base using hem backup not pgadmin.

can i put a copy of that on a flash then on my new computer? then create the database under file backup&restore restore? or do i need to go back and back up using pgadmin 3?

also do i need to also export all my hands or will having the database copy be enough.

if i do need the hands can i just copy hem archive or do i need to go in and export all hands?

oh and since i backed up last night i figure i can just use that and then export any hands from today right?

You can use the HM backup/restore function.

You can use the backup you created last night.

And there is no need to export your hands again. You should find them in the archive folder (default c:\hmarchive). Copy them to your new computer and after restoring the backup import the hands which are not in your backup.

ok so just to be clear all my hands will move with the database from last nights back up point nothing extra to do?

Yes, in addition a backup/restore will restore:
all your hands
your bonus/rakeback info
custom HUD
(even TableScanner settings)

Do also save/backup your old archive folder though, C:/HMArchive which contain the original handhistories.

stuck on exporting only last 36 turny summaries. i highlighted them yellow right clicked and there is not an export selected option. when i clicked export sum i got a folder 2010 and 2011 am i assuming wrong that it wants to send all of the to my flash?

If you export the summaries, HoldemManager gives you the option to choose a folder.

Default is probably the Archive folder (C:HMArchive), where you also see the 2010 and 2011 subfolders.
