Hi,
I am a total newbee.  I have upgraded my wallet as advised by the advisory note placed across the top of the old wallet.
I have my litecoins backed up to an off-storage USB.
HOW DO I GET MY BACKED-UP LITECOINS to show up as verified on the new wallet.
The wallet shows my number of litecoins but it does not show them as verified.
HOW DO I LOAD MY BACKED-UP litecoin.dat wallet???????

Please help as I have no idea whatsoever and I'm starting to fear that my litecoin stash has been lost, due to my inability to perform some tasks on my PC.........

A step-by-step guide would be appreciated as I don't understand coding and commands etc etc like you guys.

Regards,
daveselbow.

Close litecoin program. Do a search on your comp for the file wallet.dat.
Open that folder and copy your backed up wallet.dat from you usb into that folder (overwrite).
Done.
