When upgrading to a new version of the BitSharesX software, what should I do with my existing wallet backup files?Should I be creating a new wallet backup every time I upgrade to a new version (and if so, do I need to keep backup files created by previous versions of the software)?

2) Do not attempt to restore from an "old backup" - While technically the purpose of a backup is to prevent you from losing funds, the backups at this point in time are there to allow *future versions* to have a hope at recovering all of your funds. Backups are generated automatically every time you upgrade the wallet. When you upgrade only use the "most recent" backup. Generally speaking you shouldn't ever have to dive into a backup file that is older than your last transaction. While future versions may allow you to recover all of your funds, your transaction history may never quite recover all of the data you may want.
