Copying Your Data to a New PC

Copying your data to a new PC can be done in two ways. 1. Copy the entire WinBidPro folder (recommended) 2. Copy your vendor folders, hardware database, and master database Copying the entire WinBidPro folder Before you copy your WinBidPro folder to a new PC, make sure WinBidPro is not yet installed on the new PC. You will install it after your data is copied over. (This is to ensure that old files from an earlier version of WinBidPro don’t overwrite files from the current version that you will download on the new PC). Step 1: Locate your WinBidPro folder (usually in the main directory on your C drive) Step 2: Find out the size of your winbidpro folder

  • Right click WinBidPro, then click properties.​ Here you will see the size of the folder.
Step 3: Make sure your new PC has enough space.
  • On your new PC, click "This PC". Here you will see the available space on your hard drive.
Once you've confirmed you have enough available space to copy over the WinBidPro folder,
  • Copy the folder from your old PC onto a USB drive
  • Then copy the folder from your USB drive onto the new PC.
