All users are recommended to make a backup copy of their certificate on an independent storage support.
Once you have exported your certificate and made a backup copy, you may keep it on the device of your choice (e.g. a crypto card or a crypto token USB). By doing so, you will be able to carry on using your digital certificate even if your equipment is damaged or lost.
Remember that, when making a backup copy, you will be asked for a password to protect the file generated (extensions ".pfx" or ".p12"). You should keep this file and password in a safe place as you will need it at a later date to be able to reinstall your certificate.
