First of all. What is the Private Key ? 

Each Bitcoin Plus - XBC address has what is called a private key. The private key is saved in the wallet file. The private keys are mathematically related to the Bitcoin Plus - XBC address generated for the Bitcoin Plus wallet. 

To access the coins linked to a XBC address all you need is the private key. It doesn't matter where you are in the world. You simply import this private key and all the coins are imported into your current wallet. So how do we get the Private Key ? 

Lets run through an example - 

1. Start your XBC wallet. 

2. This part only applies if you have previously encrypted your wallet. You can only obtain a Private Key from an Unlocked Wallet. 

If it is locked just unlock it but uncheck "For staking only"

3. Go to menu Help > Debug window > tab Console

4. In the Console Command Prompt write dumpprivkey "your-wallet-address"

So if the wallet address was BLo8EAZzVsnGnvrb4i1GnHVv1bSMRemejp you would write :

dumpprivkey BLo8EAZzVsnGnvrb4i1GnHVv1bSMRemejp

Press Enter and the Private Key for that address will be returned.

5. Write down code returned on a few papers / files / whatever and keep it safe. 

6. Later if your Hard Drive fails or computer ends up stolen or similar then you can import the private key into a new wallet and restore your lost coins. 

Please see the following article on how to import your private key into a Bitcoin Plus Wallet.
