Recovering wallet...



  • @bryan So if the password and seed were the same (as given in Sia UI) - then what would that person do?

    If you insert the password it will recreate the seed for you.

  • @bryan Understood, but to the POST... he lost his password. At least he says he did. Losing the password is equivalent to losing the SEED In many cases. shrugs

    @moorsc0de Yes the seed is useless without the password.

  • wallet.db + password = open wallet
    wallet.db + seed (when seed is the same as password) = open wallet
    only seed = recover wallet
    only password (different than seed) and no wallet.db = useless



  • This post is deleted!


  • @stealthx meh, the seed and password are the same so i'm rendered sh** out of luck.

    @hudene Yep sorry man. Unless you can use a file recovery tool.

    If you're unable to do so then count this as a learning experience and next time, don't just store your password/seed digitally. Write it down! If all else fails, you'll have a physical copy of your information then!

    Sorry for your loss.
