To experiment a wallet recovery with Multibit I tried to restore a wallet from the cloud (Dropbox) backup.
The originary wallet is on a Linux - Ubuntu machine with Multibit 0.5.1 installed
I tested the recovery on another Ubuntu machine with Multibit 0.5.1 instead.
but Multibit stuck and nothing happens, so I tried to restore without a backup but simply giving the wallet words and the wallet was restored ok!
It seems that for restore operations, the most important things are the wallet word, but at this point the backups that Multibit automatically perform on Dropbox what are they for?
Thans for any reply, sorry for my bad english

Finally I Understood, all that backups that Multibit perform on Dropbox are optional, and only are only used to store things like your contacts and notes made regarding transactions.
Tho wallet is restored with blockchain and the only thing that YOU MUST HAVE to restore are the wallet words and the data stamp.
This is my experience and is confirmed by the Multibit Support answer to my help request.
