This only backs up the wallet, correct? I'm assuming it cannot copy while the bitcoin program is running, but I don't know how bitcoin uses the wallet file and if it locks it or not. Could you let me know?

This looks to be what I have been looking for.

The bitcoin program does not block the purse, she uses it less frequently

ps Sorry, will soon update the version, this may fail to copy. Just beta version.

Does this encrypt the file it sends to gmail or anything like that?

just create .bat file (for windows 7, in xp other path to wallet.dat):
Code:
@echo off
:start
xcopy.exe "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin\wallet.dat" "C:\%Dropbox_folder%\" /y
sleep 1800
goto start
and do not trust third-party programs

Since Windows XP doesn't recognize @echo off or the sleep commands by default, here's my first stab at a batch script that will do this.

:start
xcopy.exe "C:\Documents and Settings\xxx\Application Data\Bitcoin\wallet.dat" "C:\%Dropbox_folder%\Bitcoin\Wallet Backup\" /y
ping -n 21600 127.0.0.1
goto start

It does bring up a command prompt, but I'm not sure yet how to prevent that from happening in Windows XP.

If you're like me and don't have many transactions in a day, you could also edit the .bat to this:

xcopy.exe "C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin\wallet.dat" "C:\%Dropbox_folder%\" /y
exit

That will do the backup and then close the prompt window. Didn't think about posting this with the rest of it. I figure many people will know this, but others won't.

Would be nice if it could zip and encrypt the file before adding it to dropbox. I use a program called Syncback for all the backups on my computer, and can schedule intervals like this. The ability to encrypt files is important when making these backups especially if you're adding things to the cloud.

There's no reason to back up the wallet so often. Really, the only thing that needs backing up are they private keys associated from each account. Given a private key, you can create the public key, and from that, the address. Since Bitcoin keeps ~100 spare private keys in the wallet (for later use for change, etc), you no longer need to backup your wallet after every transaction. Ideally I think, you should back up your wallet when most of the keys from the prior backup's key pool have been used.

And how do you detect such an event?

Getinfo reports "keypoololdest", which is the unix time of the oldest key. When this time is after the time of your last backup, then your backup is too old.

Do NOT download this. It deletes your wallet and sends it to the developer’s email so he can steal all your BTC.

Seriously, you should be banned forever.

And do not use the xcopy command, guys. It can make a broken wallet.dat copy if it is in use. Use hard link instead.

Just run the script as different user - then console window won't show up.

We have a new lesson:

1. Never download anything from a forum member who do not release the source code or have no history with the community.

2. You should separate your wallet into two type: A spending wallet, and a saving wallet.

Is this the same Russian scammer who got his wallet emptied after being tracked down? Will the owner get their bitcoin back?
