about 4 years ago i bought some litecoins and saved them on my electrum wallet (could’ve been litecoin-qt memory is fuzzy on this)
I didn’t encrypt it, but i also didnt save the private key. very stupid i know now
I know upon saving the .dat file, I re-opened it, and seeing as I had no issue with opening it, I saved left them on external hard drive, not worrying about private keys
Now, I can’t open them on electrum-ltc wallet, or litecoin-qt wallet and don’t really know how to go about this.
Any info on this would be appreciated.
eeeeeekkkkkk… that sucks wish i had an answer…
have you tried google searching???
I think you probably used litecoin-qt since the wallet file for electrum-ltc is named: default_wallet
Did you be sure to copy the wallet.dat file back to your data directory (https://litecoin.info/Data_directory) before trying to open it with litecoin-qt/core?
thanks for the reply. ill try to copy it back to the data directory now
i renamed the file to litecoins.dat when i saved it at the time, but just recently changed it to wallet.dat after reading a few forum posts to change it to that, dont know if it’ll make any difference
Basically i did use litecoin-qt. so long ago couldnt even remember
if anyone has this problem in the future just try downloading litecoin qt wallet and downloading the entire network. took me about 9 hours to download. but great feeling to see they were all still there
