How to backup IoP wallet and resync the blockchain

Hello, in this short video tutorial i will show you how to backup your wallet and how to resync the IoP Core Wallet So first i want to start with, how to backup the walletdat This is the file in which all your so called "private keys" are stored This is where all your IoPs are stored If you, lose this file, you lose all of your coins So before you delete anything of the IoP client or something similar Always, make sure to backup this file File is located in the IoP folder inside the %AppData% folder Here's how, to found it Here you see your wallet

dat file Please copy to a safe place Maybe twice or triple or whatever you want Maybe you use a thumbdrive or something similar But also, please keep in mind if someone else has this file from you it will, also have the full control over your IoPs But if you have set up a password it will also need a password to control your IoPs So maybe it's a wise idea to encrypt your wallet before that step And here i will show you how to do it And here you enter your password and save it Now, we come for the resync of the blockchain Nothing easier than this Just delete anything in the above folder EXCEPT the walletdat and start the Core Client again After full sync your IoPs are still there but the blockchain is completely new synced So, that's was it Have fun and stay safe!
