hi there Smiley technical question here..

say I have a receive address in my bitcoin wallet, already received some coins on that address.

I backup my wallet.

after that, I receive some more coins on that same address.

do I need to backup my wallet again? I figured that the backed-up wallet already contains that address, so that should my wallet get corrupted, I can simply use my backed-up wallet again and it will show the same amount of coins that I had before it corrupted, but after the last transaction.

not completely sure if it works like that though.. so to be sure, does anybody know?

thanks in advance!

No you don't need another backup since the address that incoming coins went in, is already in the backed up wallet.
You 'll probably need a backup if you send money because your wallet will create a new "changes" address.

If you don't want to do the backup again the easy thing to do is to just send all your coins to one of your first used addresses at the end of the day too, since that address is still in your backed up wallet.
