Hi

How do you back up your Bitcoin Wallet. For Instance I want to format my hard drive..

Can I put it on a flash card and take it with me. ?

Thank you

Yes, you just need your wallet.dat file, the rest can be redownloaded.

Yes, you can put it on a flash drive and move it around.

Assuming you're on Windows, you can find your wallet.dat file by pushing Windows Key+R, then typing in "%APPDATA%\BitCoin".
