Do you have backup .json file? It is so critical to backup your wallet at least once. If you do so, the bottomline is that you will not lose coins. Because btsx uses a master key to generate all private keys.

It might have overwritten the old wallet file.
You have to enable "show hidden files" usually to see it...

Well, the files inside that folder (the wallet) are created only if they don't exist, so if you didnt delete them they should be the originals ( 0.2.1 ).

What happens when you launch the newly installed BitsharesX.app? Do you see your account and balances?

it asked me to create the password for new wallet, and when I got in it, i saw nothing relevant to my old wallet.

The wallet data is in ~/Library/Application\ Support/BitShares\ X
Did you delete those files also? or just the BitSharesX.app ?

i found what you said, however, since I installed the 0.3 version client after that (i had 0.21 before),
I'm not sure if it's for the 0.3 client or my old one

just as the title said.
I somehow deleted the client just 10 mins before, and I have a lot bitshares (as to me) in it.
Can anyone offer ideas about how to recover my asset?
I would appreciate your help!
