This article describes how to move your Poker Copilot database and settings from one Windows computer to another.

Important note: We will move the Poker Copilot database so it doesn’t need to be built again. However, it is highly recommended that you move all of your hand history files too. If there is a problem with your local database in the future, Poker Copilot will rebuild it by parsing all the hand history files anew. It is always a good idea to keep a backup of all your hand history files so you don’t run the risk of losing your data.

Preparation

Make sure that you have installed the same version of Poker Copilot on both computers. To check your version number, select Help -> About Poker Copilot from the top menu. This guide assumes that on your new computer, you have a new installation of Poker Copilot. Any existing data or settings on your new computer will be overwritten.

Exporting data on your old computer

1) On your old computer, make sure Poker Copilot is not running.
2) Open the Windows Explorer (Windows XP, Windows 7) or File Explorer (Windows 8, Windows 10)
3) Copy and paste the following line into the address bar of the Explorer and press enter

%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Barbary Software

Note: If you’re using Windows XP use this path instead
%HOMEPATH%\Application Data\Barbary Software

4) In the folder that now opens, there will be a folder called “Poker Copilot”. Copy this entire folder to a backup medium of your choice, for example an USB stick. Depending on the number of hands you have stored, the folder might be very large and copying could take a while. Make sure your destination medium has enough free space.

Exporting settings on your old computer

1) On your old computer, run Poker Copilot and go to “Preferences > General”
2) Click on “Export preferences” and save that json file to your backup medium.

Importing data to your new computer

1) On your new computer, exit Poker Copilot, if it is running
2) Open the Windows Explorer (Windows XP, Windows 7) or File Explorer (Windows 8, Windows 10)
3) Copy and paste the following line into the address bar of the Explorer and press enter

%UserProfile%\AppData\Local\Barbary Software

Note: If you’re using Windows XP use this path instead
%HOMEPATH%\Application Data\Barbary Software

4) In the folder that now opens, delete the folder called “Poker Copilot”.
5) Copy the folder called “Poker Copilot” from your backup medium into the open folder, effectively replacing the folder you deleted in step 4.

Importing settings to your new computer

1) On your new computer, run Poker Copilot and go to “Preferences > General”
2) Click on “Import preferences”, find the json file on your backup medium and double click it
3) Confirm the preferences change by clicking “Import”

Finally, restart Poker Copilot. You should find that all of your settings and your entire database is exactly as it was on your old computer.
