Backup and Restore Crown Wallet Guide
« on: December 18, 2017, 10:39:05 am »
It is best practice to make frequent backups of your wallet. Without a backup you cannot recover your tokens in case of an event. 

The following steps will encrypt and back up your wallet:

1. Start Wallet
2. Go to "Settings" > "Encrypt Wallet"
3. Create and carefully store your passphrase
4. Restart your wallet
5. Go to "File" > "Backup Wallet"
6. Save the wallet.dat file to at least one external drive

Your wallet backup is now saved

Restoring a backup:

1. Go to the folder "C:\Users\[YourUsername]\AppData\Roaming\Crown". You may need to unhide hidden folders
2. Rename the original wallet.dat file
3. Copy your backup file into the Crown folder and rename to wallet.dat

Your backup restore is now complete
