You can't use Electrum with wallet.dat. The wallet formats are different and you have to export the wallet.dat into private keys before importing it into Electrum.

Does the pywallet show all your addresses? Can you try running Bitcoin Core with -salvagewallet as a flag?

Dont send your wallet.dat to anyone and keep multiple backups of it.

From 2009 wallet https://ibb.co/yPQfmTB , i have GB2312 inside writed and
Most likely the files you have recovered are NOT wallet files... just because it ends in .dat does not mean it is a wallet file.

".dat" is simply a generic file extension (used by a number of different applications and even operating systems) to denote that it is a "data" file storing, generally storing binary data... as opposed to a text file (.txt) or a picture file (.jpg, .gif, .png...) etc.

In most cases, they are only able to be opened "properly" with the application that created them.

I just want to snoop in and say, this account has been posting similar things for the past two months now. .sys files, .exe files, .dats, .schizophrenia and others. At first, I believed too but now... Just check the post history, he just rabbles over the same thing over and over again.

Don't feed the troll.

I used Reshacker, how can i dump it with pywallet.py if its not wallet.dat files?
Obviously, you can't... if it isn't an actual "wallet.dat" file created by Bitcoin Core... then pywallet is useless, as pywallet is designed to work with Bitcoin Core wallet.dat files.

Why would you want to "dump" a non wallet file anyway? Huh There is not point, it doesn't contain any private keys.

Alot of files are encrypted with truecrypt but i manage to found some deleted before encryption.
This 3 files give me same private key aswel this Archive_14197968.raf.dat https://ibb.co/tKpKJR9
I highly doubt those files are giving you anything useful at all... Your wallet file is lost. You will not be able to recover your private keys or your bitcoins.

Thank you for pointing this out.  I've removed my comments from this thread, and added the user to my ignore list.

I recently had a similar case when the supposed victim sent me a doc file with possible passwords to examine. Contained a trojan.

I would strongly advice anyone to open documents like word, pdf, rar or even mp4 files.

You will get infected with a virus, you will get scammed, you will loose your funds
