THIS IS FOR ADVANCED USERS - FOR BACKING UP YOU SHOULD JUST USE THE BACKUP BUTTONS IN THE ELECTRON WALLET OR THE QT. See here For those that need to or wish to perform a manual backup, you should first shut down your wallet software. The file locations if you are using electron are here if on windows : C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Xaya\wallets\game.dat\wallet.dat C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Xaya\wallets\vault.dat\wallet.dat If you are using the QT on windows, it will create just 1 wallet which is here C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Xaya\wallets\wallet.dat Or on Linux if your are using the QT or daemon : ~/.xaya/wallets/wallet.dat and on Mac ~/Library/Application Support/Xaya/wallets/wallet.dat If you haven't run the XAYA QT wallet, you will not have first file in that list. This is normal. With the wallet software not running, copy those files to a safe location. Make sure that you know which wallet is which. You may wish to rename them, e.g. "My XAYA game wallet.dat" or "My XAYA QT wallet.dat" or "My XAYA vault wallet.dat". Restart your wallet software after you've safely backed up your wallets.
