Preface: I have been attempting to crack this previous Bitcoin Core Pockets for just a few days now, it has been a rollercoaster (as this story of recovering wallets sometimes is). The sequence of occasions goes one thing like this: Cracked my previous Home windows 8 person password to get into the drive to get the pockets.dat, ran PyWallet –dumpwallet, PyWallet couldn’t open pockets.dat/principal, ran –dumpwallet and –recovery collectively and despatched it to a USB partition, it lastly received me one thing.
It solely managed to get well 61 keys however there are nonetheless 180-something keys it could not get well and none of these 61 keys have the cash. The pockets is non-passkey so I haven’t got to fret about that. I am attempting to determine why I can solely get well 61 of those keys.
I am at some extent the place I am contemplating operating one thing like photoRec or foremost to search out any sort of authentic pockets.dat.
