@ totohasproblem and everyone new around here

You better not deal with noobs from this forum, chance is very high that people who have a new accounts here are scammers and not trustworthy. "I need access to your computer" and so on, to steal your wallets and infect machine with some malware. "I can fix it but PM me" and such bullshits. Do not buy into such schemes. Anyone who is worthy of dealing with in cryptocoin community already has some Full, Senior or higher rank member account, for everyone else just asume they are up for no good and you will be fine.

What exactly happens is, in this case, secondary to the fact that file is gone. So I have nothing more to add to this thread but again point back to procedure for file recovery at the first page.

Because original corrupted wallet.dat file was renamed to wallet.(timestamp).bak file which is then renamed back to wallet.dat file which is subsequently deleted it shows that wallet.(timestamp).bak file is not the same as original corrupted wallet.dat file or Bitcoin Core handles .dat and .bak files differently, deleting the later (after it was renamed) for no obvious reason. Put differently, original corrupted wallet.dat and wallet.dat file created by renaming wallet.(timestamp).bak files were not treated equally for some reason. Why simply not rename to .bak and exit, as previously?

Still it is unclear why and unexpected that Bitcoin Core deleted corrupt wallet.dat file. It should create a copy of it no matter what or not mess with wallet file at all if it is unreadable or whatever.

Issue thread created at https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/issues/7647 let's see what devs have to say about it.

Okay but I think you are going to cop it when they read this step:

Code:
6. Rename wallet.(random numbers).bak back to wallet.dat and start Bitcoin Core again.

(quite clearly it was *you* that got rid of the "wallet.XXX.bak" file not Bitcoin Core by renaming it)

True but in any case Bitcoin Core should keep a copy of corrupt wallet.dat file.

Procedure is as explained at https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1389123.msg14114474#msg14114474 and because there are no traces of .bak file or any other version of wallet.dat to which guy sent bitcoins I see no alternative to https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1389123.msg14113910#msg14113910

The worst case scenario is if Bitcoin Core simply nulled (innitialized) corrupt wallet.dat (previously wallet.(timestamp).bak file) then renamed it to __db.80000002.2d624f7d which is deleted afterwards.

Right, but there are differences at OS level when it comes to handling of files. In any case, there are no traces of .bak file on my computer.

If there are no traces of the "wallet.XXX.bak" file after being renamed to "wallet.dat" (assuming you deleted the empty "wallet.dat" first) then it is because Bitcoin Core didn't find a problem with it when it restarted (i.e. the file wasn't corrupt).

There is no wallet.dat file at the stage when you are renaming .bak file to .dat file.

Behaviour might be different based on OS, I am using Win7 64-bit with Bitcoin Core v0.12 64-bit.

The code I quoted is the same code regardless of OS (there isn't separate source code for the different OS versions).

Right, but there are differences at OS level when it comes to handling of files. In any case, there are no traces of .bak file on my computer.

So - it is not "sending your wallet somewhere"*** but renaming the corrupt wallet.dat to wallet.XXX.dat (as it can't open that wallet).

It then will create a new empty wallet and continue. Your old wallet is still there (just renamed to wallet.XXX.dat) but that file is corrupt - so if you rename it back to wallet.dat you are of course going to just go around in circles (as renaming isn't going to magically repair it).

You do get that this wallet "is corrupt" don't you?

***(perhaps you consider "renaming" to be "sending somewhere" in which case we have resolved that communication problem)

Before going any further I would recommend that you take a copy of the "wallet.XXX.dat" file.

That is not exactly how it goes.

1. Shutdown Bitcoin Core then move existing wallet.dat to some other directory.
2. Start Bitcoin Core, it will create a new wallet.dat file.
3. While Bitcoin Core is running, rename newly created wallet.dat to whatever else.
4. Shutdown Bitcoin Core, it will throw an error and exit.
5. Rename file back to wallet.dat and start Bitcoin Core again, it will detect corrupt wallet.dat then it will rename it to wallet.(random numbers).bak and exit.
6. Rename wallet.(random numbers).bak back to wallet.dat and start Bitcoin Core again.
7. Bitcoin Core will delete wallet.dat file and create __db.80000002.2d624f7d file (size is 512 bytes) then afterwards create a new wallet.dat file. Or wallet.dat file was not deleted but nulled (innitialized) and renamed to __db.80000002.2d624f7d can't realy tell.
8. Upon the next Bitcoin Core shutdown __db.80000002.2d624f7d file will be deleted.

Hence wallet.(random numbers).bak is gone, one way or another. And guy did not created a backup of it at step 5. nor did he created a backup of wallet.dat at step 6.

So you do not have backup of a new wallet nor backup of wallet.1457257429.bak?

NO,

i renamed the bak file to wallet file
so it is normally not lost
but the system replaced it with a new wallet file
the normal procedere is that the system will only replace if in the folder is no wallet.dat available
in my case the system see a wallet.dat, but knowing that this was a wallet.2314234.bak before and then removes it
(not really replace, because it goes away a second after start the app, and the new one is coing after all the checks.)

so, where the system send the file, is htere any backup or so,
i think here we need experts in the software itself right, is there any support for bitcoin core that is highly advanced, i even will pay them 500$ per hour for that. i need it to be solved.

First of all, do not mess with partition and HDD where you have Bitcoin wallet.dat files! Second, download Recuva https://www.piriform.com/recuva or some other file recovery software to different computer, install it there then shutdown your computer with Bitcoin wallet.dat files. Remove HDD from it, attach it to computer with file recovery software and do a full deep scan of HDD. All found deleted files must be copied to different HDD, not the one that have Bitcoin wallet.dat files! Unless you are perfectly aware of what you are doing better just take HDD to file recovery specialist or service.

Bitcoin Core simply deleted your new wallet.dat (wallet.2314234.bak) file but possibly there is a chance it is not unrecoverably overwritten.

and the programm created a new wallet and send the old 94kb wallet, what was renamed back to wallet.dat to SOMEWHERE.
Where can it be?

2016-03-06 09:43:49 Renamed wallet.dat to wallet.1457257429.bak
2016-03-06 09:43:49 Salvage(aggressive) found no records in wallet.1457257429.bak.

Clearly, wallet did not send old wallet.dat anywhere but renamed it to wallet.1457257429.bak

so so, anybody still following this? it is still under active development, or they fucked up everything and only hangover remains?Smiley

Traded at Poloniex, online wallet at https://xdp.plddr.eu/ and explorer at https://dogepartychain.io/ is all I know.

looks like the server is down for the wallet

Yes, I was registering some more assets few days ago and wallet went crazy, sorry for that.  Grin

Not sure if it was mentioned earlier but it would be better if all 5 million coins end up distributed no matter how much BTC end up donated. As it is now, based on BTC value, 7.69 % coins should be distributed which is less than 500k coins, quite a low supply. It would eventualy complicate commerce, even with 8 decimal places. Many argued on this forum that even Bitcoin with 21 million coins total could run into same issues so I think ELC community should not opt for very low coin supply.

The market is looking strong too

Market is not realy strong, liquidity is missing. I am having trouble even slowly cashing-out my small 4,000 WARP ICO bag. And with such market it is not realy hard to push price to 25k or higher.

It might be a good investment of time to check Mini-Blockchain scheme which Cryptonite is using. It offers superb syncing from scratch (under 20 minutes to fully sync with few years of data) and much lighter blockchain because all transactions where previously unspent input was spent are discarded after a while (I think it is one week), it is not keeping all transactions at blockchain.

big red letters saying dont buy, means buy in reality.  Im in for a few $$$  some you win some you lose.

XCR seemed like big buy yet no serious price increase occured, at least not with good enough liquidity for any major investor to cash out with profit, developers excluded. Which means XCR and now LISK developers and community are clueless when it comes to pumps and dumps which should make you think twice before investing more into this coin. Which is a clone of a coin that did not make it. Which is having as small community as XCR had unless you are dumb enough to believe value for number of participants is correct.

This ICO is a money grab by lame developers who, if they are decent people, could do it all with XCR but they burned XCR ICO money on some personal bullshits and now want even more money.

You can report as much as you want, I won't be silenced because I am asking the right question. Values you are showing at LISK website are fiction unless you can provide BTC address(es).

You're fucking stupid.  period.  The answer has been said a hundred times already.

Realy? Do you know BTC address? No. Which means you don't know the real values for BTC nor participants which are inflated to get more coins for free and attract more idiots like you. So STFU.

800+ BTC invested and 700+ participants are lies, do not invest into this ICO!

Hamburgers are delicious, don't worry about my money son.  Walk away and take your $5 with ya.

Problem is that you poor fucks are here all day long attempting to make your one hamburger multiply in two or three. Or maybe ten. And to eventualy achieve that you are going to great length which includes bitching on people like me who are saying the truth and stuff you are highly likely aware of yourself but bitching about that would make your one hamburger never multiply. Cheap bitches.
