This may be a stupid question, currently looking at the Bitcoin folder in windows that stores everything, its just under 1GB
Can I simply click on the Bitcoin wallet, select "cut" and then paste it into my external HDD and not store it on my laptop?
is this possible?
Will I be able to just plug in my external HDD, open up the bitcoin and it will be able to connect and receive/send BTC as easy as that?
I ask because I'm getting several hundred dollars worth of BTC soon and a little paranoid about keeping it on here.
So I thought I could backup to an external HDD + a memory stick
just 2 questions
1. When I have bitcoins in my wallet, transfered from the website I bought them from, are they physically IN that wallet? and if I copy that to an external HDD will they now be stored there?
2. is there any reason not having a bitcoin wallet on your desktop and only storing it on an external HDD is a bad idea?
Thanks a lot!
