    GUIDE: How to back up your bank file

    STEP 1

    Head to the directory where the bank file is stored

    Windows location
    Spoiler : Path :

    Mac location
    Spoiler : Path :
    "/Users/YOUR_USERNAME/Library/application support/blizzard/Starcraft II/accounts/YOUR_ACCOUNT_NUMBER/#-S2-#-#######"

    Mac Users
    In Mac OS X 10.7 and above(Lion), the Library folder is hidden by default. To show it, copy and paste "chflags nohidden ~/Library/" into the terminal app and press enter. It should now appear in your User folder next to documents, downloads, etc folder. To hide it again use "chflags hidden ~/Library"

    STEP 2
    In your folder named with your handle, you should see a "Banks" folder. Copy that "Banks" folder into wherever you think would be safe or convenient for you, such as;

    • Cloud Storage services (Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, etc)
    • A flash drive/External HDD
    • Another computer/laptop

    You can use software such as "Everyday Auto Backup"(suggested by Sureiya) to automatically copy the banks folder at set intervals of time to another location.

    STEP 3
    To put the banks data back into your StarCraft II installation, go to the same directory from step 1 and replace the banks folder there with your backup. As a general rule, you should delete the bank folder THEN move the backup in. If you merge the folders there may be problems.

    I'd like to add that you cannot transfer your bank information from one realm (for example, EU) to another via this method. If you do that, it'll likely identify your bank as hacked and will wipe it.

    You should also never, ever tamper with the text file within the bank directly. It can result in unintended behaviour. I think C/Ping from one (backed-up) bank (the entire text file itself) to your actual bank might work, as I recall doing that before, but I'm not sure and I would advise against doing it.
