NOTE: Wallet versions older than 1.0.4 use the name "ColossusCoinXT" rather than "ColossusXT" for the COLX folder and config file. Substitute as needed, and update your wallet as soon as possible.

First, close your COLX wallet application.

Next, open your ColossusXT folder:

For Windows: Press Windows + R. This will open the Run window.
Paste this and click OK %appdata%\ColossusXT
For Mac: Press Command + Shift + G. This will open the "Go to" window.
Paste this: ~/Library/Application Support/ColossusXT/

Next, locate the wallet.dat file in the ColossusXT folder, and rename it to wallet.old. Then, copy the wallet.dat from your backup folder into this folder. Next, relaunch the COLX wallet application. Wait for the wallet to synchronize. If your COLX does not appear, click on Tools, Wallet Repair, and click the button that says "Rescan blockchain files". This will automatically close and relaunch your wallet. Wait for the wallet to complete the rescan, and synchronize. If your COLX still does not appear, click on Tools, Wallet Repair, and click the button that says "Recover transactions 1". This will automatically close and relaunch your wallet. Wait for the wallet to complete the recovery and synchronize. Your COLX should now be available.
