Now, before I let the wallet download the Blockchain, would I just take and move a copy of my backup into the folder that is named “src”? I had just thought that I would find the folder that was named wallet.dat, but I don’t see any such folder/file anywhere.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
It is located under the directory: C:\Users\richard\AppData\Roaming\PPCoin[/quote]
Thank you for your reply, Caribou!!
Ok, yes I did find that folder. Inside that folder I have the following folders:
daemon ppcoind.exe (Command Line)
license.txt (Read Only)
readme.txt (Read Only)
I ASSume that I would move the PPC backup.dat folder into the src folder, correct? Or would I just put it in C:\Program Files\PPCoin along with the above mentioned folders?
Once I get it in the right spot, I will have to wait for the QT to sync up to the Blockchain before my coins will show in my new wallet, correct? I dl’d the Peercoin wallet on my new pc, but did not launch it yet, I figured it is probably best to wait until I have the backup file in place before running the new wallet, correct??
Don’t move the folder, just COPY the wallet.dat file into that folder and over write the one in there. Note there will not be a wallet.dat file in that location until the wallet is opened for the first time. C:\Users\richard\AppData\Roaming\PPCoin
should be where the file goes. Switch out richard with w/e user name you are using.[/quote]
Ok, I did find the location on my pc, but it is C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\PPCoin
The “Roaming” part is not there. Does that matter?
Also, the name of my backup is PPC backup.dat, do I need to change it to just wallet.dat?
