where has my btsx gone???? ?:(
« on: December 07, 2014, 01:35:45 PM »

I had the latest version of bitshares x but recently i upgraded to something that has no x in the title It asked me to create a new password so i used my old one and my old account name and now i have 0 btsx again ;... k so seriously this happens like every time i upgrade and i dont know the commands to import my wallets so it is distressing to say the least I have the passphrase to the wallet but currently i am out 5000 btsx  please someone help!!!

Did you have to download the blockchain again?

You have a backup of the wallet?

Can you got to console and type blockchain_is_synced?

When I re-installed the client a while ago, I found it just installed a second copy of the software, rather than upgrading it.

So you might find you have 2 versions of the software installed - one pointed at the old wallet, and one pointed at the new.

ahh .. explains it ..

go to "%APPDATA%/Roaming"

you will find a folder "BitShares X" which contains your OLD wallet
and a "BitShares" folder .. that one contains the 'new' wallets ..
rename the "BitShares" folder to something else .. better not delete it .. for safety ..

then rename "BitShares X" to "BitShares" and start up the client again .. it should start with reindexing the database ..
give him some time for reindex and resync ... MAKE A BACKUP afterwards too !!!

I am not sure where the app data went to so i might be screwed but isn't there a way to import a wallet if you know the passphrase and have the address

in the "bitshares x" folder there are several folders .. such as "chains" "peersleveldb" etc .. most of them are just for database and blockchain stuff ..
the IMPORTANT folder is the "wallets" folder ..
in it there is a hidden folder called ".backups/default" ..

you can now either import one of those backups (preferable the latest one) .. or you copy the whole wallets folder into the "BitShares" folder (make sure to not overwrite the previous "defaults" folder but rename it before)
