I can do that!
Truly appreciate your taking the time to reach out and help.
Was not seeing any light at the other end and getting real bummed out.
Thank you for taking the time, you have made my day and little smile is starting to take shape.
It’s just me & my PC today, getting this all figured out is my Christmas gift.
Is it possible that a wallet.dat file found in the “appdata” folder (The vital wallet.dat Backup file, I was directed to Copy and Save on the thumb drive), is part of the New Litecoin core v14 downloaded & saved earlier?
The reason I ask is that I found a wallet.dat file in an external HD that I believe to be the one I am actually looking for.
I guess it’s also possible they could be the same wallet.dat file…
Is there a way to check the file, before running the sync?
Not sure it makes a difference but the wallet I received my LTC was Only used for the 1 transaction.
All steps completed, except the re-install and Sync of Litecoin core v0.14.2.
tried a number of times to get the New version running but after the download is I can see the folder and open it but it appears none of the files will launch the program & sync process?
prior to your reply I did an extensive search of any and all old files and uninstalled or deleted them. Wiped browser history. downloaded new Litecoin V14.2 . I have a backup wallet.dat file on external HD.
Here is a screen shot of were I’m at.
So at time point before clicking next. I go the F:/drive to New Litecoin core folder / open it / delete or replace wallet.dat file with my back up file. Return to the window in the last screen shot and click Next.
Ok I’ve opened to the New Litecoin folder but can not see a wallet.dat file anywhere?
Do you first have to run a Sync before the new wallet.dat file populates. Then delete and replace it?
Or do I just paste the old wallet.dat file into the new folder in F Drive and click Next?
