I want to describe what happened first:
1. I put a sell order of 1169x BTS at 0.073xx (I can't remember exactly the both number), before I click confirm, my computer is power off due to a powercut;
2. When I open the computer again, the wallet can't open, I go to the roam find the "bitshares" folder is only 57M which should be close to 2G. What's worse, the "wallets" folder is blank with no data in it, seems corrupt;
3. Hopefully I have a copy of "bitshares" folder two days ago, I replaced it with this backup;
4. After 3, I found there is no open order or BTS balance;
5. Hopefully I have a copy of json wallet backup 12 hours ago, so I use the menu to import this latest json, still no BTS balance.

I don't use any console command because I'm not good at it. Can I get my 11699BTS back? How?

Thanks!

We've all made mistakes. Hope you resolve the issue. Someone smarter than me may be able to help. In the meantime, if it makes you feel any better,

I feel your pain.

On     >_console   :P

type this command:

wallet_regenerate_keys account_name 1000

PS  account_name= your account name you made the order

wait until it finishes and you should be ok   ;)

What liondani said. All keys are deterministic now so your money can be recovered. Rest easy :).

Try 10500 instead of 1000

If 10500 doesn't work try with more keys, in my case 10500 and 11000 keys didn't work, my next step was 22000 keys and this worked.

What a stupid guy I am. I only check one copy "wallets" to be corrupt, but another copy is complete. So when I replace it with my "wallets" under which I create the sell order, the coins are sitting there.

Maybe I am lucky because my hard disk is SSD.

So if change the number will work out or not, I can't test it. Leave it to the next one, I hope there will be no one. LOL...

The important thing is you had a lot of copies. Not a stupid guy at all.
