Hi guys,

I did a search for the file "wallet.dat" and can't find anything. I know the default location is in the Bitcoin folder in app support, there is no Bitcoin folder there.

I'd really like to back up, it's making me tense!

Can someone help?

Are you sure you are looking in the "Application Support" folder within your home folder, as opposed to the other "Application Support" folder at the root level of your hard disk?

That is, the file is here:
/Users/<your-user-name>/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/wallet.dat

NOT here:
/Library/Application Support/

Thank you, that is correct.

Also, worth pointing out, is that this path *is* included in Time Machine backups. So, +1  for my Mac automatically backing up my wallet  Cheesy
