I have been using the same database "IB" since I started using Amibroker. I trade futures. Due to IB symbol definitions, ESH8-GLOBEX-FUT for example, contracts are starting to interfere with each other due to the year. Symbols already exist and if you click on them they start to fill old years with current data. I have hundreds of expired futures contracts.
I don't want to delete the old contracts, I would like to save them, perhaps clean them up and make a continuous contract. How can I move them to an archive database? I tried cut and paste in windows and moved the files to a new database, but this was a mistake. The files are still showing in the directory window.
