I heard there is a deeper salvage possible, look for it
If it still doesn't work try the pywallet recovery feature

having a look, I can find nothing beyond the -salvagewallet command, I will look further.
I will use pywallet as a last resort, I'm not that good at stuff like that, I got into a mess last time I tried to use it.

To be honest, I would not know what to look for, let alone how to extract and import it elsewhere.
By your question I am assuming that the wallet.dat has gone beyond the beyond?

Many features can indeed lead to troubles if badly used, you should post in the pywallet thread if it happened to you
On the other hand the recovery feature can't do any damage, it just read things
Anyway if you choose to use it and need help, ask me

Are you trolling?

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Look at the console where you launched pywallet, the last lines must tell you what happened (check there is nothing private before posting)

just to be clear, you can't "recover" by opening wallet.dat with notepad. Even opening a working wallet will result in gibberish.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Alright guys, thanks for the advice, Just so you know I found a really old wallet.dat that worked!

It's so important to keep lots of backups people! It paid off for me, I do wonder how this was able to corrupt, and even copy's that were backed up before it showed corrupt?

Oh well, Thank is something I guess I wont know, Or able to find out.
