This is a tutorial video on how to backup your PIVX Wallet. Ensuring you backup your wallet will prevent you from: losing your coins from any computer hardware, wallet errors and any other sorts of issues/errors. Having a secure backup is the only way to retrieve your coins from any computer hardware, wallet errors and any other sorts of issues/errors. After creating a backup we recommend transferring your backup file to a offline computer/secure USB drive.
BACKING UP STEPS:
OPEN THE PIVX WALLET (WAIT FOR FULL SYNC)
GO TO: “FILE” (TOP LEFT OF THE WALLET)
GO TO: “BACKUP WALLET”
NAME YOUR BACK FILE (EXAMPLE: PIVX BACKUP 1)
SAVE IT TO A SECURE AREA (OFFLINE COMPUTER/SECURE USB)
WE WOULD RECOMMEND THAT YOU MOVE YOUR PIVX BACKUP FILE TO A SAFE AND SECURE PLACE LIKE A SECURE USB OR TO ANOTHER OFFLINE COMPUTER.
WE ALSO STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU DO NOT STORE YOUR WALLET BACKUP FILES ON ANY CLOUD BASE STORAGES AS THIS CAN BE COMPROMISED.

WARNING: NOT BACKING UP YOUR PIVX WALLET WILL RESULT IN LOSING YOUR COINS IF SHOULD THERE BE A FAULT WITH YOUR COMPUTER, HARDWARE, WALLET ERRORS AND ANY OTHER SORTS OF ISSUES/ ERRORS. THEREFORE WE RECOMMEND BACKING UP YOUR WALLET EVERY OTHER DAY FOR SECURITY AND PEACE OF MIND.

Simply copying your backup wallet.dat into the data directory of any pivx installation will allow the wallet to load it and restore your funds.
