I have read all of the documentation I can find for this wallet (not much), and played around with it a bit. Before I take the plunge, I just want to clear a few things up about how it operates. Official documentation: https://ciphrex.com/docs/Bitcoin_Vault-Getting_Started.pdf

I have experimented with backups on a small amount of bitcoin. It seems like I am unable to restore my wallet balance solely from an exported private and/or public BIP32 keychain, or from a keychain file. My understanding from the documentation is that all of your actual used addresses are stored in a separate account file, and indeed I do get my balance back when I restore that file from a backup. Is this by design, or am I missing an aspect of the backup? It doesn't seem very useful to me to have a master seed that can't restore full functionality to a wallet without another file, since I can't simply store the master seed in a paper backup and have faith that I could restore my funds in the case of a hard drive failure or theft.

Can anyone elaborate on the functionality of backups for this wallet?

I read reviews and good things about mSIGNA wallets.  I wasn't aware of the complexity of using one.  I procured some bitcoins off of the localbits trade market and from there attempted to send them to my new mSIGNA wallet.  I used the mSIGNA address that the mSIGNA recieve transaction produced, but they did not arrive.  A while later I realized that my wallet was not communicating to the network, and that was likely the reason that the transaction was not successful.  I've since learned how to gain a localhub network access for the wallet, but the transaction remains unspent on the block board.  How can I retrieve these bitcoins?  I do have the pass words and keychain, etc.  Please help.

I have never used mSIGNA, but i think you should try to export your private keys and use another client (like Electrum) to import them.
