Recovering lost wallet from old windows install
« on: August 28, 2014, 01:40:15 am »
I have a Users folder (with appdata intact) that I would like to recover the wallet file from.

I do not see any json or wallet.dat file in the wallets folder in appdata]\BitshareX folder

here is a screenshot of the target directory I am trying to recover from: http://imgur.com/wZMNvqI

Any suggestions?

Thanks,,,

Close client

Copy the old "default" folder and replace it with the current one

Open client

The entire "...\wallets\default" folder is the wallet. It is not a single file. You might also want to save the "...\wallets\.backups" folder if there is one.

I was the one posting for cambie24, and I did not realize the whole folder was the wallet. Thank you for the help, I think we figured it out :D
