"Recover seed" concept**
Hi, I'm new here and something confused me a bit now.
First, I made my first wallet from Sia-UI mobile app.
I received some amount SC to one of this addresses.
I will call it #1.
And I decided to test cloud storage.
So I installed Sia-UI on my Mac. I made a new wallet(I will call it #2) from the desktop application.
Then I found "Recover seed" button,
I wanted #1 to be used in my Mac.
Entered #1 seed password.
Now, I got confused.
On mobile app, I don't see any balance.
On the other hand, on desktop application I can see the balance in #1 seed address.
So I thought when I recovered seed, the seed has kind of moved.
So I tested.
There are many addresses in one seed, right?
so I have sent 5 SC from recovered seed (#1) on my Mac
to the other address in #1 seed.
Then I can see the only 5 SC on mobile app.
On mobile app, I could see all the addresses and all I can check is one of those addresses?
I didn't even point out particular address when I recover it.
It was just seed itself.
How do I clean it up?
The "Recover seed" button in Sia-UI will sweep your funds from the seed you entered to the current wallet you are using in Sia-UI, thus all the funds from #1 was transferred/swept to wallet #2. Hence the 0SC you see in wallet #1 after you use the "recover seed" button. Using the same seed on 2 separate machine is not recommended as it can cause problems.0
