I'm going to try to make a way for kids to earn Devcoin. I remember when I was a kid (like 14-17), I used to search for "How to make money online" all the time.

Any real devs willing to take this on and try to resolve the issue? Or is this a speculators thread? Wink

I spent some time in April trying to improve the new user startup experience.   I put the builds up the start of this month, and they have had a few hundred downloads, and I have not had any issues reported yet.      https://www.box.com/s/1mqfk22gyqq97ytdmifi

I really need some help.

I had 1,000,000 devcoins on one of my computer's C drives and I wanted to transfer it to a different G drive so I could keep that drive unplugged (hot swappable) just for added security.  So I cut and paste my entire user file from C to G cause I wanted to make sure everything was copied over.

Problem was some files would not transfer saying they were in use even though I closed everything that had to do with devcoin.  some of these files were log files and some dat files.  I think what happed was the wallet.dat file didn't transfer over cause when I tried to pull up the wallet in the G drive my entire 1 million coins were gone.  I paid $400 for these coins 2 weeks ago so this is costing more than that desktop is worth.

so then I realized the mistake I made and saw that the wallet.dat file was still on the C drive because I did NOT delete anything.  So I then copied and pasted everything from G back to C hoping it would just combine everything missing with everything that got left over.  

But no, when I open the devcoin wallet it's a totally new wallet with different address and my previous addresses are gone and so is the 1,000,000 devcoins  

I didn't delete anything so the coins have to be on there somewhere.  Can anybody help me out.  I really don't wanna lose this many coins.  Thanks.

If you have the wallet.dat you are safe.

That's what i'm thinking but I don't think they're connecting.  

So I tried to copy the wallet.dat file and directly paste it on top of the devcoin client thinking maybe it wasn't finding it and then I get an error saying to change the password to <password> and it gives me a path to follow but when I get to appdata it's not there.  appdata part of the path so I can't get to devcoin to change the password in order to manually add the wallet.dat file.  I think it's all messed up so that's probably why it created a new wallet with different receiver wallet numbers than what I had.





Well, if devcoin ever gets up there in price then it will be worth to hire someone to come in and find it.  cause right now I'm more likely to mess it up worse.

I tried to restore from an earlier session but there are none, I just this old server 2 weeks ago and installed windows 7 pro so there's no back up yet which would have probably worked.

thanks but I didn't delete anything.  I only cut and pasted and what didn't transfer I clicked on skip so it left those files on C and I can see all the receiver files and dat files are still on C.  So it only transferred the bigger files from the devcoin client.  I guess those smaller files were opened even though I closed the client.

All right everyone, after some sweating I've added Devcoin to ALTcointip bot, so now you can go spread awareness among Redditors Wink

Original announcement thread for ALTcointip is here: [ANN][LTC][PPC][NMC][NVC][TRC][DVC] You can now tip ALTcoins on Reddit!

cut is a deleting operation

I would guess you did not actually close devcoin, but minimized it to the tray.  So locked files did not get copied over. When you ran it off of G it could not find a wallet.dat and so made a new one.

copy is not a combining operation, at this point the filesystem replaced your c wallet.dat with the one you just told it to copy from G that was newly made it seems.

you did both an attempted delete with the cut, and you overwrote any existing wallet.dat left if that failed when you copied back from G.  So yeah, you did delete and overwrite things.   At this point you should have turned off the computer and not let anything else be written to the drives.   Now, you would take them out and run a program that searched for bdb patterns and key patterns, in the hope that at the raw sector level the data was left, and it reallocated things.   If not and it is a magnetic drive you have a slim chance a consumer grade data recovery place can get to it, very slim.     If is is ssd there are some other tricks to try, but also pretty expensive to have done.

I think you may have wiped out your file past your abilities to recover it if I read what you did accurately.

I agree with Twobits' excellent analysis. Unless a miracle happens, it's gone.

What can be done, is get a new address from your new wallet, then a test transaction will be sent to it. After it works, I'll change the file addresses and ask Mark to generate a new receiver, and all the other file administrators to upload it. This will give you 8,235,000 devcoins for your round 23 work. In return, as soon as you get about 1.1 million of them, you'll pay all the file administrators their typical salary of 2/5 of a share, which is 143,713 each this round. You'll also pay the people who helped on this thread, 143,713 for Twobits who wrote an informative post, and half that to FinShaggy and Jasinlee who wrote small posts. You'd end up with around 7 million.

If you agree to this, please message me a new address.

I'll kick in the 143,713 Unthinkingbit's proposal would have you sending to me in my capacity as a file administrator. (That is, don't bother sending me the 143,713.)

Yeah I'll put some into the wallet if you give us your address. Vlad: ask questions if you're not sure before you play around with stuff. I know there was some moaning about your posts, but that was simply an issue of frequency and losing track of the thread; not a statement to keep quiet about something you feel excited/need help with.

@vlad have you tried to recover the wallet like twobits suggested, for example with recuva or something similar? I personally would at least try if it's about potentially a few hundred bucks
