Hey guys,

So for a simple wallet back up its just a case of file>backup wallet>stick the file anywhere and done ?

And the Encrypt option just makes a password right?

That encrypts the private keys stored in the wallet.dat.

If a wallet is encrypted prior to use, then no keys will exist on the filesystem without first having been encrypted.   If encryption is performed on an existing wallet, you might want to spend the funds to a new address in the wallet to ensure all funds are held for addresses protected with passphrase encryption.
