To restore your eWallet data from a backup:

eWallet does not have a special backup file format; you can simply make a copy of your .WLT file from your desktop computer or Windows Mobile PDA. To restore from a backup, simply open up the .WLT file that you backed up; eWallet will remember to open it the next time you use the program.

  • To open a wallet on the Windows PC, Click the eWallet icon to the left of the Home tab -> Open Wallet, or double-click on the wallet file from Windows Explorer.
  • To open a wallet on the Mac, go to File -> Open Wallet.
  • To open a wallet on a Windows Mobile PDA with a touch screen, tap OK until you are at the Wallets list, then tap on the wallet you want to open.
  • To open a wallet on a Windows Mobile PDA without a touch screen, pick Menu -> Open Wallet.
