Wallet Backup Instructions
1. Start the wallet software, go to File and click ‘Backup Wallet’.

2. Select a location and give the backup a name. Press Save. You may wish to change the filename to something else that lets you know which coin it belongs to (important if you have multiple backups for different coins!) For example, ‘xbywallet.dat’. You’ll need to rename this back to wallet.dat if you ever restore it.

That’s it! Make sure to keep this backup file in a safe place. Preferably in multiple places!
