I saved it in my documents folder. Should i just do it in PT4 file or no. Wasn't sure to do that in case i messed up or corrupted the program. Thank you

You need to transfer the backup file that was created on the old computer to the new computer. You can transfer the backup file between the computers using a USB stick/flash drive or via the cloud (Google Drive, Dropbox e.t.c.). When the backup file has been transferred to a folder on the new computer you can then run 'File -> Restore' in PokerTracker 4 and select the backup file wherever you saved it on the new computer.

If you are using NoteCaddy temporarily disable it via the 'PokerTracker Apps' menu option, restart PokerTracker 4 and then try again.

I'm not sure what you mean but if you were getting prompted to overwrite individual files such as NoteCaddy definitions then you can disable the 'Always Prompt Before Overwrite' option under the restore options.

Did you also disable NoteCaddy as I mentioned here when you previously posted the same error? Also if you are being prompted to overwrite the existing database because the restored database has the same name then you also have the option of renaming the database before restoring. If you have any further trouble please open a Support Ticket with your support bundle attached:
