    Re: GPG Backup

    Do i just need to put ~/.gnupg/* on floppy/cdr or is there more to it?

    Re: GPG Backup

    I guess that's all you'd have to do. GPG stores all it's files in that dir.

    I wouldn't really know, though, I've never backed anything up before

    Copy secring.gpg and pubring.gpg from your ~/.gnupg directory. That's all. No need to zip up the whole directory.
