BACKUP

WALLET BACKUP

Foreword

Make a backup EVERYTIME you create a new wallet address and to be sure, also create backups in periodic intervals

What is the "Wallet"?

The “Galilel Wallet” is a file (wallet.dat) which contains all your private seeds. With the seeds you can claim possession of coins stored on the respective addresses. If you lose the wallet.dat, you lose all your funds

Why Make a Backup?

You could lose your wallet.dat because of a drive failure or simply by deleting by accident. On top of that, wallet files can also become corrupted, due to an unclean shutdown of the wallet

Option 1

Open your wallet and got to

“File” -- > “Backup Wallet..."

Enter a filename and click save

Option 2

Takes more space, good for fast restore

CLOSE wallet for this

Press “Windows + R” and enter

%APPDATA%/galilel

or go to C:\Users\"Your User"\AppData\Roaming\ and zip the whole galilel folder

EXPORTING PRIVATE KEYS

Foreword

Dump the private key for every new created address in your wallet and be sure to note these keys somewhere save, on multiple drives or at best printed out in a safe!

What is a Private Key?

The private key is an alphanumeric string that allows coins to be spent. These keys are stored in the wallet file. With galilel wallet you not only have private seeds for your addresses, you additionally have one seed dedicated to zGALI (anonymous funds)

Why Make a Backup?

In case you lose the ability to restore your wallet file, the private keys are the last option to restore your funds to a new wallet file
