This is an updated version of the GUI version of Crypto Wallet Backup.
It adds in 2 things:
- Testnet folders
- *.conf files
There are no other functional changes.
If you use testnet, and need your testnet wallet, then this is what you want.
If you also want to back up your *.conf files, then this is what you want.
I added these because I lost a truckload of testnet coins that I needed for some other software development. They took me a good deal of effort to get, and thanks to a software blunder… POOF they went! Sigh… Lesson learned… again… the hard way… as always…
I added in *.conf files because, well, might as well do that too as I’m sure some people might find it useful.
The 2 new options are obvious.
Download Crypto Wallet Backup v1.1 < Program Only
Download Crypto Wallet Backup v1.1 source < Source Code Only (not elegant, but effective)
The program is the same otherwise… well, I did freeze the form while the backup occurs, but it unfreezes once the backup is completed. That’s the only other change, and it’s only cosemetic. So, for more information, check out the original post here.
Hopefully that will help save some pain for someone.
