  1. has this ever happened to anyone else besides me ?

    I have to type in 150 - 300 symbols again

    arghhhhh :mad:
  2. I'd sue.
  3. you can make a backup of your ib info. ive had to use it a couple of times.
  4. I had the problem before with the stand alone version. But because I had the web version as a backup, I was able to copy the page file over from its directory.
  5. Yes Seth it happened to me. Word to the wise - read and reread every symbol, expiry month and year you reenter on your pages.

    I shorted a DEC 04 not 03 contract on an open one night that hadn't traded for weeks. Had to offer a 700$ premium to get someone to make a market for me and it took weeks to close it. :eek:

  6. oh well ... one more project for me to do sunday is to try to remember what my most important pages were

    and retype them in correctly
  7. A: It's real easy to back up the IB directory

    B: You should be backing up your entire computer on a regular basis, cloning the drive ,or by file.

    C: There is no C:

  8. Based on the way you typed the subject line you either have hands and fingers the size of a baseball glove, or your cat was tapping away at the caps key while you were typing!
