New machine, want to uninstall Sleepyhead/reinstall it.
How do I uninstall Sleepyhead and do a clean install for my new machine? I make sure to put my card on unwritable before inserting it into my computer.

Thank you.

Sleephead is freeware. It can be installed to as many machines as you wish. If you don't have the setup files, go online and download them. Then just set up your profile in the new machine and use it as you have been.

If I understand you are getting a new cpap machine and want to purge old data?
Sleephead doesn't install in the manner of what I think you are thinking.
I use my PAP machine nightly and I feel great!

If you do not want to keep your old data, there is no need to uninstall Sleepyhead and reinstall it. You can purge all your old data from Sleepyhead from the menu:

Your data will still be on the old card though. It won't erase the card. You would use the new card from your new machine from that point on.

Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

Thank you.

Sleepyhead will let you create as many profiles as you want. You can just start a new one if you want.

If your profile was named "Joe" you could make a new one name "Joe - New" or whatever you want.

You can delete your old data if you wish, but there's no advantage to doing that. You might want to go back and look at it.

You can "uninstall" the whole thing simply by deleting the directory you run it in.

The above is my opinion.  It is just possible that I may, occasionally, be mistaken.

I am neither a Doctor, nor any other kind of medical professional.

What I did when I upgraded from my S8 machine to my S9 machine was to merely create a new patient with the same name and S9 at the end of it.
