Dear Sirs,

To reduce the database size you should do the following:

1) extract two files from the zip-folder and copy them into the directory, where MultiCharts is installed, normally it is "C:\Program Files\TS Support\MultiCharts\"

(to know the directory, where MultiCharts is installed, right click on icon MC->Properties->Start in)

2) Close QuoteManager and MC

3) Run the gbak.bat file

4) Rename TSstorage.gdb to TSstorage_old.gdb_old and TSstorage_New.gdb to TSstorage.gdb in "%allusersprofile%\Application Data\TS Support\MultiCharts\Databases\"

4) Rename TSstorage.dll to TSstorage_old.dll_old and TSstorage_New.dll to TSstorage.dll

=> tsStorage.dll file in the MultiCharts install folder?

I think it should be read as

4) Rename TSstorage.GDB to TSstorage_old.GDB and TSstorage_New.GDB to TSstorage.GDB


Please clarify this.

Dear Haerim,

You are right. Thank you very much for correcting me.

I apologize for misinformation.

Dave, just to confirm, above you say that the database should work even if larger than 4GB, true?

Does this mean that the gbak process reduces the database size but isn't strictly required?

What does the gbak process remove?

Thanks!

jek,

Databases can be larger than 4GB, some users have such databases but we have not tested such configuration. If you delete symbols and/or data from the Quote Manager, the actual size of the database remains the same. Gbak removes this already deleted data from the database reducing its size.

Is there also a version of the Gbak script for MCDT?

Executing the script in "C:\Program Files\MultiCharts Discretionary Trader\" leaves the database in "C:\ProgramData\TS Support\MultiCharts Discretionary Trader\Databases\" untouched but does change the database in "C:\ProgramData\TS Support\MultiCharts\Databases\".
