     513==== Backup Tor Identity Keys 
     514After your initial installation and start of the tor daemon it is a good idea to make a backup of your relay's long term identity keys. They are located in the "keys" subfolder of your DataDirectory (simply make a copy of the entire folder and store it in a secure location).
     515Since relays have a ramp-up time it makes sense to backup the identity key to be able to restore your relay's reputation after a disk failure - otherwise you would have to go through the ramp-up phase again.

     517Default locations of the keys folder:
     518* Debian/Ubuntu: /var/lib/tor/keys
