How to upgrade Zencash swing wallet on Mac


#1

Hi,

What is the safest way to upgrade my Zencash swing wallet? I have an older version of the wallet that needs to be updated. If I install the current version of the Zencash swing wallet will it overwrite the existing wallet and wallet.dat file? I backed up the wallet.dat file from the existing wallet installation. Yes, I’m paranoid.

Thanks for the help!

Installing the new version of the wallet does not overwrite the directory with the blockhcain and the wallet.dat on Mac OS: ~/Library/Application Support/Zen/

When it comes to backups, being paranoid is good. The wallet.dat needs to be backed up regularly (not just once - say after every few outgoing transactions) and it MUST also be backed up after creating a new Z address.
