NO. You need to backup all your wallet files. If you were to only have/use the default multibit.wallet, then that is all you would need to backup. But that file does not hold information for any other wallet you created. Each one of those also needs backed up.

You can find more direct help on this dedicated MultiBit forum: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?PHPSESSID=v4lefhogmd58oe85n56ko06914&board=99.0

And the MultiBit web site has thorough documentation, as well: https://multibit.org/index.html

Thanks for the reply, i did notice other untitled wallet.dat files in the Multibit folder (even though i have named my wallets Wallet1, Wallet 2 etc), i will just back up EVERYTHING in the folder then to be safe.

So it looks like i will have to open every wallet.dat file if i do a recovery....
