    Default Laptop broke down, backup via external hard drive?

    Hello.

    I was wondering how to proceed getting a backup of my database, when i can't access the HEM2 application but just all the folders located on the hard drive.

    My laptop broke down, and i have gotten the hard drive out and plugged it in the new computer as an external drive..

    What to do?

    Thanks

    Default

    zip these 3 folders
    - postgresql\data
    - parent folder - in roaming
    - hm roaming folder (except Parent)
    then unzip all this is same locations on new PC

    Roaming is in:

    7: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\HoldemManager\

    XP: C:\Documents and Settings\User_name\Application Data\HoldemManager


    See this tutorial for showing system and hidden files:

    Then, Please download the same version of postgresql that you have now from Download PostgreSQL | EnterpriseDB. Install using the same folder that you just unzipped.

    Also:

    Please see this FAQ to transfer/backup data:
