i have a wallet.dat file
Where did you get this file from, did you download it from the internet from someone else or did you actually create it yourself some time ago using a wallet application?

What is the the format of the private key- the first characters and length of the key?
If you bought the wallet most likely you have been scammed already. Where did you get the wallet from?
Check the address accosiated with the private key from the bitcoin core you are trying to transfer the funds from on the blockchain. Like blockchair.com or blockchain.com There will see the actuall funds in the address.

Bought wallets are manipulated files that already contain funded addresses, in fact they usually contain addresses with huge balances. That is how they get their victims, checking the address on a block explorer is not going to help.

 Hi if it is a real private key then it should start with the number 5, letter k or L. Go to website www.electrum.org and download wallet. When youve installed then click wallet tab then private keys. Then you can import your key there. It will show your coin.

Did you try this command in pywallet?
Code:
pywallet.py --dumpwallet --password=YOURPASSWORD
If yes, what was the error message?

Welcome to the forum williamochoar. While I'm sure you're more worried about unlocking your wallet.dat file than reading our rules, I recommend you to post your problem in a more structured way so that we can help you better. You can grab the "template" from this sticky -> https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1741772.0

pooya87 made a really important question : is this your own file or did you bought it from a random user over the internet? These days there a high chance than whoever sold it to you made it look that the wallet has more btc than one may think just to lure you into a trap. Hope this is not the case.

If the wallet is indeed yours then filling the previous mentioned template will facilitate our side in trying to provide assistance to you.

Be safe.

This is not going to work. The OP has a bitcoin core wallet, not an Electrum wallet. They both use completely different file formats for storing the wallet.

And besides, he can't even read his private keys.



Anyway, if you get "some private keys decrypt but not all", that means your wallet is corrupt. Did you try running:

Code:
./pywallet.py --recover --recov_device /path/to/wallet.dat --recov_size 1Gio --recov_outputdir /tmp/pywallet-output

And then check if your private keys are located in the /tmp/pywallet-output folder? It's your best shot at recovering them. You may have to change /tmp/pywallet-output to a different folder if you are using Windows.

First.. if you bought that file or were given it by someone: Be assured, there are no private keys associated to any funded address inside of it. In this case, you got scammed.

If this however is not the case and the wallet was created by you with core, then could you please list the exact steps you did to partially recover the private keys from that wallet file?
How many chars does your encrypted private key have?

Have you tried to use "-salvagewallet"?
You can try that to save your corrupted wallet.dat file. You can do it through a command prompt under the Bitcoin core folder to run "-salvagewallet"

or make a bat file for this with this code inside
Code:
bitcoin-qt.exe -salvagewallet
put this bat file to the bitcoin core folder then run it.

If you're confused you can follow the guide on how to salvage the wallet file from here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exzfi1OKWow

in the folder there are just db files and another .dat file, help

Did you try what others suggested above?
If you already got the private keys but some of them are encrypted try to decrypt them with OpenSSL.
You can follow this full guide "How to recover your corrupted or deleted bitcoin core wallet" It has 3 options to recover private keys and I think the 2nd option will work under "corrupted wallets".

Make sure to make a copy of your wallet.dat file first before you do anything from your wallet file for safety purposes.

Yes you are supposed to run it on the .dat file. The .dat file is your wallet file, you don't need to use the other files called "db" and similar.

First you got to download the https://github.com/jackjack-jj/pywallet repository from Github, and then install Python 2 (it doesn't work on Python 3 yet). Then make a copy of the .dat file so that the original .dat file doesn't get destroyed. As I mentioned before, then you can  run:

Code:
./pywallet.py --recover --recov_device <PUT THE COPY OF THE .DAT FILE'S PATH HERE> --recov_size 1Gio --recov_outputdir /tmp/pywallet-output

Then it will ask you for the password to open your .dat file. Since you remember your password, type it here.

It will look for all the unencrypted private keys, and then attempt to decrypt the encrypted private keys inside the .dat file. It will print the private keys of the ones that it was able to decrypt.

i already did this and when i do this in the output folder i get a .dat file when i put it con bitcoinCore my btc disappear can you tell me why? , obviously, i made a backup before i run the command !

Then it will ask you for the password to open your .dat file. Since you remember your password, type it here.

Hi William,

please make a backup/copy of your file!

What's the output of pywallet? or what's the error message?

Thanks and bye,

Before attempting to use pywallet... did you try loading your wallet.dat using the -salvagewallet option in Bitcoin Core? Huh

Again, make sure you have made copies of the original wallet.dat file... and work on a copy of the wallet.dat... not the original file!
