I have a wallet.dat which generated a Bitcoin address.
I successfully sent Bitcoins to this address.

Before using the wallet.dat I stored it in a save location.

If I now use the stored wallet.dat my Balance is 0.00 but if I move the current wallet.dat back to the bitcoin app folder my Balance is ok.

Is it possible to retrieve the new balance with the previously stored wallet or do I have to backup my wallet every time a change in Balance has been made?

If you find my post useful send some BTC: 167XM1Za8aG9CdbYuHFMpL2kvPsw6uC8da

Try running the client with the "-rescan" parameter.

Thanks.
It worked. Had to be a bit patient until it came up.
