Hi all, Unfortunately Windows pooped out on me a few days ago but before it went to absolute crap I backed up my Litecoin wallet.dat file.

Now I'm trying to import it. I'm not sure which wallet.dat it is - I have a 64kb file and an 88kb file, do you know which it is more likely to be?

I've tried pasting both files into the %appdata%/Roaming/Litecoin directory and then using the -rescan feature. Litecoin-qt scans for about 5 minutes and then opens, without importing my wallet. Also, my wallet was encrypted and I remember the password to it, is there any way I can recover it?

When I run that in Litecoin-Qt it gives me the error "method not found".
