How to restore wallet backup? (wallet.dat/wallet.dat.xxxx.bak)

It must be a simple question, but I didn't find a step-by-step guide that solved my situation.

I tried just replacing the wallet.dat file, but it doesn't work. always generates a new address.

Thank you to anyone who can help me.

Sorry for late reply, the fastest support is on Discord. Try shutting down the wallet.

In your data folder, backup your existing wallet.dat file, name it something like wallet-20240316.dat.

Copy your backup wallet to data folder and rename it to wallet.dat.

Start the wallet and let it sync. If balance is not correct, try the following:

Settings > Debug > Repair wallet > Rescan blockchain file

Data Folder Location
WINDOWS: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\PIVX
MAC: ~/Library/Application Support/PIVX OR ~/.pivx
LINUX: ~/.pivx
