    Default Files in "players" in "database" can be deleted?

    Hi!

    I am going to format my computer and it seems that the "players" in "database" have plenty of files that take hours to copy.
    I would like to know if this is of any importance or if i can delete it?

    Thanks

    Don't do it that way.

    Please see this FAQ to transfer/backup data - http://hm2faq.holdemmanager.com/ques...dem+Manager%3F

    This will ensure that you have your hand histories and HUD saved to import into a new computer, and as a backup to restore in case of an emergency. I recommend you do this at least once a month and keep the last 2 or 3 most recent backups (and your \HM2Archive folder) stored on an external drive and/or cloud storage site like dropbox or google drive.

    Thanks.

    I did that already but i am saving everything from the "appdata" too just in case.
    But the "players" paste has plenty of files which take several our to copy.

    In holdem manager backup database i don't see "players" written there. Is it part of any other "configuration files to include" or isn't important and i donīt need to copy it to another disk before starting to format the disk?

    That's only part of the database. It's really complicated to restore it and the postgres data folder your way.

    Please use our steps to make it easy and reliable.

    So i just need to follow those steps and i can format the disc without having to save (copy to another disc) other files like the "players" one i mentioned?

    Right.

    You can backup the database. you should do an export of your HUDs and save c:\hm2archive
