Hey Guys,

I know this is a stupid question, but since i don;t know for sure i'll just ask it:

I am upgrading my pc with a new ssd Smiley, so i'll install a new windows.
is it enough to just copy my wallet and then paste it on the new bitcoin client on the new OS?
or should i store the bitcoins on an online wallet, and just send them to my new bitcoin client?
(which online wallet is trustworthy?)


Thanks for the help!
