1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Need some clarification on wallet loss/theft, backups, and restoration on: June 25, 2011, 12:27:36 PM
Been digging through the forums and the wiki but havent' been able to find any specific answer on the subject.

I'm running a couple of bitcoin miners, one is a dedicated server. The hard drive on the server is encrypted, and as well I make offline backups of my wallet (again, encrypted). The question I have is say someone hacks into my server and steals my wallet, however I have a backup that I made a day or two before the wallet was stolen.

What happens if I restore my wallet file even though the more current wallet file has been stolen? Will I retain the balance I had at the time of the back up or will the newer file supercede the odler file due to the newer block or hash signatures?
