After countless attempts to unlock my wallet, I am starting to lose hope  Sad
The story in a nutshell: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1887950.msg18754513#msg18754513

(I should emphasize that I set up the passphrase only once - so the different versions of wallet.dat derive from the same setup)

So I am offering a reward of 10 LTCs to anyone who will be able to unlock my wallet.

Thanks in advance
Don

Both backups are copies of the same file? No new addresses was generated between file copying? These wallet.dat files supposed to be identical, but they not?

Open your wallet file with notepad and do search for string "purpose" (without quotes)
You will see address after every "purpose" word, this is addresses you usually see in "recieve" tab. Does these "purpose" count match for every file? Do these addresses same for every wallet.dat? You should have exactly same number of same addresses if these two identical backups.

Okay, you don't read your topic. You have two backups of two different wallets, last one is valid and contain address you recived to your coins. You probably changed your password during second backup. Try all passwords you know again.
OR
if you have two damaged files (due to hdd issues), both copies of same file, try to split with editor supporting hex edit (not notepad) and connect  two different halves. This is highly unlikely though, try to enter your passwords again.

In Bitcoin Core, setting up a password replaces all unused change addresses. In other words: after you make a transaction, your old backup becomes worthless. I assume that is the same for Litecoin. I have Litecoin Core running, but never had these problems by myself.

When I search for "error reading wallet.dat! All keys read correctly, but transaction data or address book entries might be missing or incorrect" (AKA your error), Google brings me to this page, with a similar problem in Bitcoin Core.
His surprising solution:
Quote
I had to fire up the OS on the old HD and run an older version of Bitcoin code - lo and behold, no problems with the wallet at all. Transferred balance to another address, installed new Bitcoin core and generated a new wallet.dat.

Did you - by any chance - switch to a different client version in between?

Sorry I missed your replies until now.
I'll go ahead and try your ideas.
I did get an error message after reinstalling windows and litcoin-core wallet - so at least one of the backups seems to be corrupted.
I originally installed litecoin-core on April 8th, made the small purchase on the 9th, then, during the 9th i formated and reinstalled win10, and then made the bigger purchase on April 10th.

Edit: I just found in my backup folder a file named litecoin-wallet-keys-2017-04-09-011837.dat
Could this be of any help?

I don't know what it is, probably it's your real backup? Wallet.dat?

This is a super dirtyhack solution, but if your backup is corrupted, you could try to


1.: generate a new wallet.dat
2.: somehow open the corrupted file and pray that the relevant information (i.e. privkeys) is still readable
3.: replace the privkey parts in the newly generated wallet.dat with the one from the corrupted backup
4.: pray to Nakamoto that it works

Which parts are the important ones to replace, I don't know. Others might.

…oh, and just to be sure, sometimes, wallets need the wallet.dat to be called "wallet.dat", not "litecoin-wallet-keys-2017-04-09-011837.dat" or whatever. I know, this is trivial, but you know how it is, you search your glasses and they are on your forehead Smiley

Good luck

Try it?
I'm not sure what the Windows-option is, here I would use this:
./litecoin-qt -wallet=litecoin-wallet-keys-2017-04-09-011837.dat
To start it from command-line with the right wallet.

Well, if you have three corrupted wallet.dat files you probably can try to craft legit one from them. It looks like a large part is not damaged and you can replace unsuitable parts with data from other two files. If you not generated new adresses between backups all three files should be identical, I think.

Windows non-command line way would probably be to rename it to wallet.dat, then replace the other wallet.dat with it. Just keep them all, just in case.

And get a linux machine Tongue Wink

I don't think you will really find anyone who will help you with something like that without you having to trust them and even then I don't think that you will find it because the way it works is you need your password. Did you fully sync when you said tour balance was 0 and doesnt the file need to be renamed to wallet.dat  ?

You people are still replying to this?
As you can see he recovered his wallet already so he no longer needs assistance.

OP should lock and close this thread now!

That could be true. But i think he is not planning to do that, as you can see he was posted dave service 2 weeks later after he asking on here and still didn't get any result. This thread should be locked because OP's problem already resolved.
