So there were no .key files anywhere in the %appdata%\MultiBit directory or subdirectories?

If you've had the wallet for a while there are bound to be backup files in there... They get generated automatically. I would not give up hope just yet, there are a couple more things you can try. Smiley
  I did get a multibit  (notepad) log.  it has a truck load of stuff in it starting multibit at 21 jan 2014.  Is there any way to get multibit wallet?

Can you take a screenshot of your %appdata%\MultiBit directory?

You are looking for a "[walletname]-data" directory. My wallet is just called multibit.wallet, so I have a "multibit-data" directory...



And then in that, there should be some "-backup" directories...



hopefully the key-backup and/or wallet-backup and/or rolling-backup directories have some files in them. The "wallet-backup" one might be a good place to start... but failing that, the "key-backup" directory might have files that contain your private keys!

These files can be generated automatically by MultiBit, so even if you haven't explicitly backed up the wallet file or exported your keys, there is a good chance the files still exist! Smiley

@OP: Do not lose hope, looking at your posts I sincerely believe there are high chances of recovering your wallet / Bitcoins. It's just a matter of looking for the backups in the right places. Listen to other posters, they're really doing a fine job at guiding you through the process. If you're still not sure, share your screen via TeamViewer with someone so that we can do this faster.

Dear HI-TEC99, HCP

Thank you very much for your help. I was successfully able to :

1. Export the private keys from Multibit Classic (disconnected the internet, solved the grayed out problem)
2. Imported into Electrum
3. Did a sweep of all the balance into new Electrum address with high fee for fast transaction

I think the problem was that I had over 200 wallet addresses which was causing the blockchain sync/reset issue

Thank you for all the help. And apologies to OP for hijacking the thread.

when I open with Notepad the info is encrypted.  but it is bitCoin stuff but only a single line of info.  I did not open all of them because I cant get them out of notepad.

  will the bitCoin Log have anything I can use?  Thank You to every one for your help!  I am learning a lot!  It's a high priced way to learn. Roll Eyes

What did you open with Notepad? which file exactly... what is the name?

If you are sure you know the password for your wallet file... there is a very good chance that we can recover your bitcoins.  You want to look for files that have names like (NOTE: the numbers will be different!):

multbit.wallet
multibit-20170602232432.key
multibit-20170602232432.wallet
multibit-20170602232432.wallet.cipher

You may need to look in "key-backup", "wallet-backup" and "wallet-unenc-backup" directories...

You may need to look in "key-backup", "wallet-backup" and "wallet-unenc-backup" directories...
rolling-backup = 1 line of encrypted data=  but it dose say BitCoin = in notepad.

 Wallet -backup = empty file

 wallet - unenc - backup has stuff in it.  2 folders and 6 pages.  all untitled data and a sting of numbers.

 I hope this is making sense. as you can see I'm very UN educated in computers. or self taught. I'm just an old guy trying to have something to give to my grandchildren.

ok, so in wallet-unenc-backup... do you see a file titled something similar to:

multibit-20170602232432.wallet.cipher

it might be called untitled-20170602232432.wallet.cipher or untitled-20170602232432.wallet? I need to know the exact file name, so I can be sure you have the right file.

 Icant find what you want BUT I came up with a file that says  MultiBit > Multibit data> Wallet-Backup
 
  it has 10 files not folders.  all notepad. all encrypted. all from 2-4-14 or so.  tells of 3%this received  20% on and on.  it looks like my money info encrypted.  2 are in Asian writing

  I'm not sure how I got it to come up.  I think I clicked on a word in header or top search box.

Do the files that you found in MultiBit > Multibit data > Wallet-Backup contain text that look something like this:
Quote
multiBit.info,1
walletVersion,3
receive,12h7Hji8ivf7LqUHaRsx9jzeibwVgGQmwE,
property,walletDescription,Your%20wallet%20description

property,receiveAddress,12h7Hji8ivf7LqUHaRsx9jzeibwVgGQmwE

And do the "Asian writing" ones look something like this:
Quote

OK... can you please tell me the EXACT name(s) of the files that have "Asian writing"...

In Windows, you may need to right click on the file and select "Properites" to see the full file name (as Windows sometimes likes to hide the end part of the name)

Have fun riding the tractor. Smiley

Can you take screenshot of that folder, where we can see the list of files and their names? You can upload the screenshot on imgur.com and post the link here. I think it would be in the best interest of everyone if we can actually LOOK into the folder to see what's there. Otherwise it may take much longer to do this.

I don't think that is the correct name... Undecided I agree with eXpl0sive... a screenshot would be incredibly helpful to us. It would certainly, make it easier to identify exactly what files you have available and therefore what process we will be able to use to help you recover your coins.

This page has relatively clear instructions (and a video!) for taking a screenshot: https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/how-to-take-a-screenshot-on-pc/

You can then upload the picture to: www.imgur.com

And it should provide you a link which you can just copy/paste here... Smiley

Preferably, I would like you to take a screen shot showing the contents of the wallet-unenc-backup AND one of the wallet-backup folders. I feel pretty confident that the right files are there based on what you've described so far, but by actually seeing the folder contents we will be able to confirm it and give you more precise instructions.

  if we recover my bitcoin,  Can someone steal it from a screenshot?  I know I couldn't but what about a person smarter than me?

  I may have a screenshot for you.

We won't ask a screenshot of anything that can be used to steal your BTC. We will only ask for the info which will enable YOU to recover your coins, nobody would be able to touch them.

Don't post screenshots of any of those files opened in notepad showing the text inside.
Just post the screenshot of the folder, showing what files are there.

I think you either forgot to paste the link... or the tags got messed up and ending up slicing out the image link...

it should be something like:

Code:
[img]http://i.imgur.com/1retcOO.png[/img]

or just paste the link to the pic like this: http://imgur.com/1retcOO
