When I got my passwords file i was very doubtful about how to keep it safe. Many ways were popping in my mind (making a hardcopy, saving in some memory disc e.t.c)After thinking for a good time i decided to keep it in my Google drive so it will be safe no matter what happened to my harddrive. I'll also recommend you guys to save your file in drive. If you want to transfer your steem to another steem account, you first have to log in to your account .Open your wallet and click on transfer. Fill in the form given including receiver's ID,your active or owner key,amount of your steem and memo and sign in.Asteem can be delivered by this process.
To powerup your account first login to your account and click on powerup.Fill in the amount of powerup and click ok.You can also check your steem history below .
