      Yes - that's how it is supposed to work.

      From my experience Elephant does not auto-import HH by default when it starts. It has an "auto import" button which you will have to set-up later in order for it to work.

      If you are very scared of the possibility of Elephant starting doing crazy things like auto-importing something you didn`t told it to, you can simply change the name and/or location of that HH folder.

      Cheers! And GL at the tables ;)

      Remove\rename the folder. Hmm this is good idea because Elephant always reimport files from that folder on startup but doesn`t remove it from folder. So at next startup Elephant autoimport the same files. :( Unfortunally this don`t work because Elephant get information about folder from poker room config files.

      Hi all,

      the auto-import at startup is indeed made by purpose.
      We're going to move the import into the background and you will still be able to do anything you want while hands beeing imported into the Elephants database.

      The background import will be prioritised and latest hands will be imported first.

      We hope to get it done already for the very next devbuild (v0.93).

      To avoid the re-imports at the moment a possible workaround would be to simply replace the folders of your last sessions...

      Cheers,
