    Default moving HM3 to new PC

    I did search for this answer, but failed to find it. I just bought a new PC, I need to move HM3 and data to it. Is there a step by step process on how to do this most effectively? I do have access to the old PC. I have about 150K hands logged.

    Thank you.

    To transfer the HM3 database and settings from one PC to another:

    - Please create an HM3 backup via the Tools - 'Backup Database...' menu.
    - Transfer that file to your new PC via removable media/storage such as a USB flash drive.
    - Restore it via the Tools - 'Restore Database...' menu.
    - See this guide for more detailed instructions.

    - Individual HUD Profiles can also be exported from the HUD - HUD Editor - Options button menu -
    - All original hands that are auto-imported get moved to an archive for performance reasons. Your \HM3Archive is in C:\HM3Archive by default, but you may have put it anywhere. The archive should be organized by \Network\Month\DayOfMonth (example: C:\HM3Archive\SiteName\HM3Archive\2016\07\31). It is configured in the Tools - Settings - Import menu.

    If you also want to manually backup the database/settings files:
    - Your actual uncompressed HM3 databases are stored in C:\Users\{UserName}\Documents\Holdem Manager 3\Databases\.
    - Your personalized HM3 settings/files are stored in C:\Users\{UserName}\AppData\Roaming\Max Value Software\Holdem Manager\3.0\.
    - If you can't see those folders/files, turn off the windows option that is hiding that directory -
