I’ve had litecoin for 4+ years (not a huge amount, but enough to be worth spending time on this!). I’ve been using Litecoin-qt on windows and can’t remember by password. I’ve tried using some of the tools to recover the wallet.dat, but when I used JohnTheRipper to decrypt the wallet.dat, I got a “This wallet is not encrypted!” message. Looking at the wallet.dat in notepad++, it’s all a mess, so I assume there’s a step needed before I can get btrecover to work (it doesn’t like the file as is right now).
Any suggestions welcome!
