    v1.3.0.0 This is a mandatory update!

    MS Windows:

    1). Delete everything but do not delete wallet.dat from %appdata%/xtrabytes
    2). Delete an old xtrabytes-qt.exe
    3). Download v1.3.0.0 https://github.com/borzalom/XtraBYtes/releases/download/pre-v1.3.0.0/xtrabytes-qt.exe

    Open the wallet, wait for a blockchain to fully synced.

    Optionally.

    If you want to speed up the blockchain syncronization, please follow this guide https://community.xtrabytes.global/...allet-faster-with-the-bootstrap-dat-file.434/

    if i backed up my wallet on an external drive, do i need to worry about the .dat file? Can i not just delete the .exe file, download new version and open?

    To sucessfully re-sync the network, you need to delete everything, but do not delete wallet.dat from %appdata%/xtrabytes

    Or you can delete everything, and copy wallet.dat from your backup to %appdata%/xtrabytes before launching the new wallet.

    Thanks goose, i was easier than it sounded. I deleted everything in that folder sauf the wallet.dat, slapped in the bootstrap file plus the new .exe and i was good as new.

    thanks
