Hello,

I would really need help from somebody who experienced same problems. I installed new Windows version on my computer. In setup wizard I formated old partition and installed fresh version of Windows.

After that I used different tools for recovering files.. like EaseUs Recovery and Recuva.. all found wallet.dat files, but when I want to open any altcoin it says: wallet.dat corrupt salvage failed..

Tried also to open *.exe with --salvage option, nothing helps..

Please suggest, how can I recover my wallets.

Regards,
Aljaz

Hey,

Tried on Windows.. installed everything..

When executing this command:

c:\pywallet-master>pywallet.py --recover --recov_device=E:\backup\wallet.dat --r
ecov_size=500Gio --recov_outputdir=C:\pywallet-master\recover

I am getting result:

Starting recovery.

Read 0.0 Go in 0.0 minutes

Found 0 possible wallets
Found 0 possible encrypted keys
Found 0 possible unencrypted keys


All the found encrypted private keys have been decrypted.
The wallet is encrypted and the passphrase is correct


Importing:


The new wallet C:\pywallet-master\recover/recovered_wallet_1503575561.dat contai
ns the 0 recovered key

What am I doing wrong?

Regards,
Aljaz

ecov_size=500Gio --recov_outputdir=C:\pywallet-master\recover

What am I doing wrong?
The --recov_device argument should be just the drive letter... You need to give it a "device”... Not a file. If you read the stack exchange link from earlier, you'll see the user is a small USB thumb drive, put the wallet file on that and then used pywallet.

And --recov_size should be the size of that device you're scanning.

So if you had a 4gig USB thumb drive, mounted as drive G: you would use:

pywallet.py --recover --recov_device=G: --recov_size=4Gio --recov_outputdir=C:\pywallet-master\recover

This software https://www.cleverfiles.com/partition-data-recovery.html can help you recover data of deleted partition . I personally used it, but it's not cheap! If you're ready to pay $89, give it a try and get your data back
