Solution

To make a backup of the Keystore, after the Keyentry has been created, please follow the instructions below:

1. Access the directory which the keystore was saved to.

By default, the keystore is saved in the following directory on your machine:

C:\WINNT\Profiles\Administrator\.keystore

OR

C:\Documents and Settings\your name\.keystore

Note: The default name, for the keystore is .keystore, if none was provided.

2. Make a copy of the .keystore file, preferably to a removable disk, in case of a system crash.

Important: Make a note of the password which was set for the .keystore file when it was generated.
