So I found my old hard drive in a box with all my old wallets on it from 2-3 years ago, one of the coins is this one. In order to check my balance is it safe to start the old wallet as long as my wallet.dat files are backed up? Want to fire it up but not sure if I need to update to the current wallet first and insert the wallet.dat file. Anyone have any information on this ?
The best thing to do is to download the new wallet and let it sync,then replace the wallet.dat file with your old one and I'm sure you'll be fine with your POT in the wallet. In any case just keep the backup of wallet.dat to be sure.
