 I work actually on a system of backup on my server and to secure my data i 
encrypt it with gnupg. But i have a problem, actually i have export my 
public key and i don't know how to export my secret-key because if i have a 
crash on my server all my data could not be decryt because i haven't the 
secret key i have made a test. Then my question how can i made a backup ok 
my secret-key to decrypt my data before a crash?

Thanks for your answer.

Excuse my english i am french.

Best Regards.
