I bought a litecoin years ago; I think between 2011-2012. I kept the coin in a wallet on my laptop hard drive. Over time, the laptop became obselete and I have replaced it and am now on my third one since then now. Just recently I thought I’d try and get the litecoin back somehow…too much time on my hands during lockdown!
Anyway, the old laptop which contained the wallet no longer switches on, so I took out the hard drive and used a SABRENT device to access it via a USB port on my new laptop. I copied the litecoin wallet over to my new laptop and began the laborious process of synching 8 years worth of data.
There was no litecoin in the wallet after I did this and after downloading a new wallet and completing the sync, still no sign of the litecoin. I don’t have any record, i.e. and e-mail when I bought it, so I’m really at a loss as to what’s happened to it.
I’m very much a novice in all of this, but if anyone can help me out, I’d be very grateful.
