2  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Decrypt private key by passphrase alone, possible? on: March 28, 2021, 06:51:25 PM
I have an encrypted private key and I know the passphrase, plus I have a salt. Is It possible to get the private key? It is from an old Bitcoin core wallet. Thanks for any help.
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Base 64 characters? Bitcoin docx file on: March 25, 2021, 09:51:38 PM
As part of an attempt to retrieve a Bitcoin wallet/private key from an old hard drive I have found a docx file labeled Bitcoin. It consists of 3 blocks of characters A-Z, a-z, numbers 1-9 and+/. Each block is about 70 characters long and about 50 lines deep. My question is, is this base 64 as it doesn't contain any = and how could I decode it? Do I need to know the start and finish of a string as It just consists of the large blocks of characters as described. Sorry for my clumsy explanation, but If anyone can give me a clue that would be great.
4  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Ran a pywallet scan and got a weird result on: March 21, 2021, 08:01:50 PM
So I recovered an old wallet.dat from a hard drive by using recovery software. The wallet is 96kb and I put it on a usb stick and ran a pywallet recovery on it. I knew the passphrase and used it, and the recovery completed fine. The result was strange as it said 0 wallets found 0 encrypted keys, 0 keys decrypted, passphrase correct wallet is decrypted. I then dumped the wallet using pywallet to a txt file but without the passphrase, just to see what it showed. What it showed was encrypted key 96 characters long numbers and letters and salt with a number, and nothing else that looked useful. Would this be of possible use to me? I know the public address that is of interest to me. Thanks if anyone can throw some light on it.
5  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Bitcoin core version 8.5 Beta console help please. on: March 17, 2021, 09:09:20 PM
I have found a Bitcoin Core version 8.5 and wanted to know a few things about console commands.
I have not let it start to sync as I have kept it offline thus far, but would like to know how to list all the addresses it contains. I have the passphrase and would like to know what to type in the console to show them and also to unlock it for a set time. Thanks for any help.

I have a recovered wallet.dat file from an old Bitcoin Core that I have recovered using Pywallet with the kind help of forum member HCP. If I use that wallet.dat in the latest Bitcoin Core with the useHD=0 and rescan options and it is synced, then will it show any Bitcoins that are in there. Thanks.

10  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Bitcoin core uninstall problem on: September 06, 2017, 05:10:28 PM
How do I uninstall Bitcoin core when it won't show up in programs. I can still get to it via %APPDATA% but I want to completely uninstall it. I had a Bitcoin core on my pc but the uninstall exe didn't work so I reinstalled hoping it would fix what was there already. I then used the uninstall exe and all it did was remove the newer one, but the old is still there. Can I just go to the folder in APPDATA and right click and delete all the individual components? will that remove it all?. Thanks.
11  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Can't uninstall Bitcoin core on: September 05, 2017, 05:00:23 PM
The uninstall shortcut says it has been changed or moved. Bitcoin core doesn't show up in programs list either so i can't uninstall from there. I'm running Windows 10.
12  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Testing old wallet.dats on: September 05, 2017, 10:30:07 AM
I have 5 old wallet files from the middle of 2013 for bitcoin core. What is the best procedure for trying them out in the latest bitcoin core?.
Should I run salvagewallet straight away or not?, and do I have to let it sync before I can tell whether there are Btc in the wallet via addresses?. Also what is the original command if I want to run it in standard command after removing the salvagewallet command (i forgot what the original was!).  Thanks again for any help.
13  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / private keys in hexadecimal help on: August 29, 2017, 10:59:30 AM
Is it true that private keys in a wallet are always preceded by the sequence 0420, or isn't that always the case. I don't want to follow the advice of others that say that the keys always follow that sequence if it doesn't. I would keep searching the wallet if in most cases the keys would follow this sequence. It is a lot of time consuming work, but for possibly 32 plus btc it is worth it, I just don't want to be on a wild goose chase. cheers. Smiley
14  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Hex editior help on: August 23, 2017, 05:02:35 PM
When reading sequence search results, does the sequence carry on the next line down?. I am using the wxhexeditor to find private keys by looking for the 0420 sequence and want to know if I should look at the 32bytes which follow on the same line and then on to the line below. Thanks.
15  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / corrupt wallet.dat on: August 18, 2017, 07:20:53 PM
How can you tell whether it is encrypted or not?. Thanks.
16  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / How to recover btc after windows reinstall on: June 24, 2017, 12:39:04 PM
Can anyone point me to a guide on using pywallet or a recovery program to attempt getting my btc back from a hard drive that has had windows reinstalled. The drive was removed from the laptop and was used for less than a week after the stupid event. I have bought a hard drive caddy but want to know if i should use a recovery program or can i just use pywallet?. If anyone could point me to a guide that is useable by a computer novice, ie a step by step spoon feed type guide, i would be very grateful. Cheers guys.
