Backup options in case of a laptop breakdown

Hello Community members

I am a newbie and currently in the process of syncing my nodes. Looking at the amount of time it seems to be taking, I am curious to find out what are the possible options for a person if his laptop breaks down during the syncing or mining process. What kind of backups are recommended and would the whole process of downloading the blockchain have to be repeated to resume mining on a new machine? Thanks in advance.

Hello nitsy,

If you’re worried about your laptop breaking down, I think you should backup the folder “ChainDB” in an external hard drive. That’s where the blockchain data is. Also, you’ll also want to backup the files “wallet.json” which is where your node ID is.
