So I backup my data folders and my wallets religiously before/after each update.
With the new version, I can download sync/etc but only with a fresh install/clean data folder.
However trying to import the wallets crashes the system completely.
Someone said that wallets are deterministic and you can never lose the information, so long as you have the private key and the password.
So I figured ok, tried to import an older wallet - voila it didn't crash... HOWEVER I see 0 balances, and transaction show as sent to "UNKNOWN".
Given that I have the JSON from before that happened, could that still be used somehow to recover these UNKNOWN transactions?
Also, what about the people who ONLY exported the "bad" wallet ( I think this started in 0.4.8 )
