Backing Up and Restoring Your Data

We recommend that you backup your StockMarketEye data on a regular basis. There are 2 ways of backing up your data in StockMarketEye:

Licensed versions of StockMarketEye also create automatic backups each time you quit StockMarketEye.

  2. Select the location and name of the backup file to write. StockMarketEye will create a ZIP file that contains the backed up data. You should never need to open or unzip this file yourself. You can also choose to encrypt the data in the ZIP file for extra security. An encrypted backup file can only be restored by StockMarketEye on your computer.

    Select the backup file to write.
