Gj81 Posted February 5, 2018 Share Posted February 5, 2018 HI, 2 questions about Toast wallet on Windows 10 .. 1 - Apart from being portable, is there any benefit using the Windows 10 Installer over the Portable Executable ( or vice versa )? 2 - I've been playing around with uninstalliing/securing Toast Wallet and found that if you move/delete the "IndexedDB" folder in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ToastWallet then the wallet effectively resets. When you next run the executable, instead of your already set up PIN screen it takes you to the Licence Agreement screen for setting up a new wallet. Restoring this folder then restores your wallet. Is it safe to say that hard deleting these files would be all it takes to "uninstall" your actual wallet from a PC ? Reason I'm asking - I'm looking to create a Veracrypt encrypted archive of my Toast wallet, containing just the portable executable and these IndexedDB files. This way I can effectively keep my Ripple Wallet offline when not in use as without these files, if someone gains access to my PC and opens Toast they would just get the startup Licence Agreement screen and process for setting up a new Wallet. Uninstalling Toast does not do this as the "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\ToastWallet" files are not deleted when uninstalling. And yes I'm aware of the risk of a keylogger getting my Veracrypt password and then somehow opening the archive and copying these files back and cracking my Toast PIN and getting my Ripple, happy to take that risk. I will also be taking a Toast Wallet backup as per the instructions and locking that away seperately. I just need to know if deleting/locking these IndexDB files is enough to prevent access to my Toast wallet. Cheers, Dave Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
