I've observed an interesting phenomenon and wanted to share: When shutting down MT with auto backup (all including data), or just employing backup, it can take a few minuted to complete as all the data is saved to a backup file. However, there have been times when I've had to initiate a system wide shut down or restart (Win 7) while MT was running and without initiating a shutdown on MT. What happens in these cases is MT goes through the shutdown process almost instantaneously - it's as if the normal shutdown process is greatly sped up. No new backup file is created, but there is also no lost data upon restarting MT. I've noticed this every time I did a system initiated reset/shutdown with MT running - almost immediate shutdown with no lag and no data loss on restart.
Hi, JM! A request for hotkeys to go on your to do list when you have the time please. Backfill would be the most useful to automate the process with a small task scheduled vbscript, then an export followed by a shutdown of MT, at the end of the trading day. Let me know what you think. Cheers
