Greetings and thank you in advance for any and all help!
I recently dug out my old MacBook Pro that had my Litecoin core wallet on it. I updated the OS, downloaded the new core wallet and synced back up with the blockchain. The old wallet shows my balance that I verified on a block explorer to still be there. The new wallet does not have a balance, but it does display my old transactions.
I cannot seem to locate the new wallet’s location. I had found in the forum’s it should be under ~/library/app support/Litecoin but there is no Litecoin folder there. I tried creating one and inserting the backed up wallet.dat file, but that didn’t do the trick. I hacked around in the console, but it’s a bit beyond me. Any help or tips would be very much appreciated at this point.
I initially attempted on a Windows machine with the backup, but I was running into the same issue of not finding the new wallet’s location. The wallet is encrypted, but I have the passphrase I created. So I can’t just open the file to get the private key, but there must be a way to decrypt that using the passphrase on a different program, right?
