Can I copy wallet.dat from Peerunity to the PeerBox?
Yes, it is possible to just copy wallet.dat file from Peerunity to Peerbox.
See this: https://github.com/peerchemist/Peerbox/wiki/How-to-backup-wallet.dat[/quote][/quote]
OK, tried all of this. Brand new USB “nerd stick”. Copy wallet.dat from my PeerUnity data directory on a WinXP computer. According to Windoze, all is OK.
“sudo ls /media” shows the USB present as USB1 - the name that I gave it in WinXP.
After stopping ppcoind as per instructions, I try:
“sudo cp /media/USB1/wallet.dat /var/lib/ppcoind”
I get an error:
“cp: cannot stat ‘/media/USB1/wallet.dat’: No such file or directory”
Tried to do a full format in Windows. FAT32. Re-copied wallet.dat. Same result.
Really puzzled as to how to copy wallet.dat to the PeerBox. I’m tempted to simply import my private key. Seems simpler.
I saw previous posts about file system problems re: Apple OS. But I’m using Windows. Is there possibly some similar issue?
Edit: PS: FWIW, it took ~36 hours for a blockchain sync for me.
