      Unfortunatly if you have used postgres for storing you hand histories, the database file wasn't located on the same folder as PokerTracker. If you saved your Postgres folder as well, than you might have some chances to recover the data.

      If you haven't changed the default install folder your databases should bee @C:\Program Files\PostgreSQL\X.XX( postgres sql version number)\data\base. If you still have the folders from there you should be in good shape. I haven't restored any Postgres SQL databases from files but I'm confiden there has to be a way of setting up Postgres to recognize the db again.

      The program "pgAdmin III" might be helpful. Try running it and having a "careful look" with it. You can see which dB's it recognizes etc.

      A soultion you can try is:
      1 backup your existing postgres files in a different location
      2 install postgres
      2.a. make sure the postgres service is not running
      3 replace data folder from the backup folder to the newly installed postgres location
      3.a restart postgres

      Hopefully that way you'll conserver your existing databases without any pain of reconfiguring everything from scratches.
