I hope OP isn't messing around with us. Every time we ask for some information, he comes up with something really absurd.

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

  I'm having hell trying to screen shot.  I do have the exact same thing you show in your second screenshot.

  I swear I'm not messing anyone around.  I just can't get screen shot to work.  I have the exact backup files that are shown in post #22 from HCP.

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


I didn't forget.  after 2.1/2 hours of trying to screeshot, trying to drag and drop,  trying to copy and paste.  that's what I got =Nothing!  it's not because I'm not trying.

Ok... that's a great start... If screen shots aren't working for you, we'll just do it the long way Wink

Can you now please tell me exactly what you have if you look in the "key-backup" folder, the "wallet-backup" and the "wallet-unenc-backup" folder... it would be very useful if you could split them out, so that it looks something like this:

Key-backup:
multibit-20170602232509.key
multibit-20170609211938.key

Wallet-backup:
multibit-20170602232509.info
multibit-20170602232509.wallet
multibit-20170605013355.info
multibit-20170605013355.wallet

Wallet-unenc-backup:

Ok... it looks like there are a couple of backup copies of your wallet file... which is great news! The problem is that extracting your keys from this file can be a bit technical and complicated Undecided

So, you currently have a couple of options...

Option 1. You can copy these two files:
untitled-20170517163027info
untitled-20170517163027wallet

from the wallet-unenc-backup folder, to the %appdata%/MultiBit directory. You should then be able to open MultiBit and go "File -> "Open Wallet" and then open the "untitled-20170517163027wallet" wallet file.

If you get asked for the password, just use your wallet password. Hopefully, that will open your wallet and start synchronizing with the network. After a long wait, you will hopefully see all your coins.

Option 2. If that doesn't work... then you would need to try to run some wallet recovery scripts on your backup file and that is where it gets very technical and complicated. Sad

So give Option #1 a go... and hopefully it works... if it doesn't we'll have to try something else.

Appdata is a folder that's normally hidden by windows. Multibit wallets put a folder inside the hidden appdata folder. You can open it using these instructions.



Click the windows start button, then copy and paste the line of text below into the search box that appears, then press the enter key to open the hidden folder containing your multibit wallet files.

%appdata%\Multibit

This is what your search box should look like after you have copied and pasted the line above into it.

It is the main MultiBit folder that contains the untitled-data folder (that contains the key-backup and wallet-unenc-backup dirs etc)... it should also contain some other files like "wallet.spvchain"

Ok, I think we are getting a little confused because windows is not configured to show the files types correctly in Windows Explorer (where you are looking at your folders and files)... so you aren't seeing the "Full" file names... To correct this, you need to:

1. Click on Start button in the bottom left corner of the desktop

2. Type "Folder Options" in the box at the bottom and you should get an option at the top that says "Folder Options", click on that:



3. You'll get a window titled "Folder Options" pop up. Click on the "View" Tab at the top and then make sure that "Hide extensions for known file types" is UNCHECKED:


4. Click "Apply" and then "OK".

Now, when you look in the appdata\Roaming\MultiBit directory... you should see the FULL filename for each file:

multibit.info
multibit.key
multibit.properties
multibit.spvchain

etc.

What you want to do is copy the "File #8 is from 2/18/14 wallet file" that you found in wallet-backup and copy that into the appdata\roaming\MultiBit directory. Then inside MultiBit program "File -> Open Wallet" and select the file #8 that you copied.

That will hopefully show you all your coins.

If you can't copy the file, you should be able to just open MultiBit program... then select "File -> Open Wallet"

You will get a Window open that allows you to select a wallet file. You should be able to see the "multibit-data" folder... double click that... and then double click the "wallet-backup" folder. You should see your backup files.

Select the one from the date before your bitcoins disappeared and then click open. This should open your wallet backup and you should be able to see your coins (assuming they have not been hacked/stolen).
