Backing up your Iridium Wallet
Hi welcome, here’s a really dead simple way to back up your Iridium Coin Wallet. Remember, unless you have a backup of your wallet, we don’t have a way to recover your wallet – even with nice devs!
Wallet files will have a .wallet extension. You can backup your address book too; the extension is .addressbook.
On MacOS and Linux you’ll find these files in your home folder under a hidden directory.
- macOS: Open your finder finder then hit command-shift G then type ~/.iridium.
- Linux (and Mac terminal too) : $ cd ~/.iridium
- On Windows, they are in %appdata%/iridium directory.
Copy and paste those to a safe place (like your desktop or a jump drive).
There’s your backup!
