Hello there!

Just found an AES encrypted wallet in my backups. But I'm not able to open it /: It looks like this:

Any suggestions? I just tried to open it with AESCrypt, no chance.. Also tried it with MultiBit (thought I created it with it several years ago) but I'm nearly 100% sure, that i did not use any Wallet Words.. But I remember the password, I used for my wallet.

Thanks!

This StackExchange question seems relevant: https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/39049/how-do-i-restore-a-multibit-hd-wallet-from-a-backup-using-only-a-password.

TL;DR - look for a .wallet.aes file.

You'll need MultiBit HD to load your wallet, those backups are useless without the seed.

MultiBit HD .zip.aes files are wallet backup files that have been encrypted using the wallet words... NOT your wallet password.

Without the wallet words, you will be unable to decrypt these files. Refer to the technical details here: https://multibit.org/help/hd0.4/backups.html
