Digital ID Backup

If you have a Digital ID that you use with email then there is a good chance you would like to back it up.  Here is an example of how you would do it with Internet Explorer.
  • Internet Explorer ->Tools -> Internet Options -> Content -> Certificates
  • Choose the Personal Tab
  • Select Certifiate to backup -> click on export
  • Choose "Yes, export the private key" -> Next
  • "Include all certificates in the certification path if possible"
  • Create a password to protect the private key -> Next
  • Give the file a name and stick with the .pfx extension

Make sure you remember the password as you will need it to recover the private key.
