Hi guys.
After few months i tryed to acces to my bitcoin wallet, and after cecking everithing i tryed to remove the password, just to make sure that everithing was working correctly
And i figured out that i don't remember the password anymore.
When i tryed it give me an Error like "Could not Decrypt bytes.

I saved the keys on a USBStick and i tryed importing but it give me the same error, i tryed creating a new Wallet and import but i get another Error.

I CAN PROVE the wallet is mine, trough the transaction i did TO and FROM Bitstamp where i bought my BTC, and where i am registered with all my details.

I am bit tilted becouse on the wallet there are 61 BTC, so if anyone can help me would be much appreciated.

The thing with bitcoin is: there is noone but you to take care of your wallet. If you forgot your password there is no "forgot my password" button. The only thing you can do is try different combinations of what you remember as the password. Usually people remember something about it e.g. it was something like
Laura13Prepon555
So youd try different numbers switch letters etc.

Just tried it to be sure, when I enter a wrong password it says exactly "Could not decrypt bytes".

you have to remember something about the password and the fee is 20%...

Its for bitcoin core though. From this [1] part they look legit as they would not exactly have your private keys. Not sure how they would enforce the 20% then, but its a common way to make sure you can trust them with your wallet. Not sure if its possible with multibit, but for such an amount Id contact them.

Edit: Since Multibit keeps every private key seperated it is actually very easy to give the service a key that has no funds on it, but still requires the password.

Do you have any older backups?

Have you changed your password over time? If so, you might be able to try to import an older (automatically created by MultiBit) backup key file using an older password.

There's also a free & open source password recovery tool you could try. You will need to do a bit of reading to get it set up and running though, so if you don't have the time, a wallet recovery service is a good option.

If you'd like to try recovering it yourself, the Tutorial and the Quick Start are here: https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover/blob/master/TUTORIAL.md#btcrecover-tutorial

If you have any questions, feel free to ask (I'm the dev of that tool).

Good luck...

Was it a complex password, 8+ digits with numbers? If not, then try brute force attack, it will take some time but it is worth a try. Roll Eyes

At the end i contacted David from
 walletrecoveryservices.com
And he found out my password, sent me back my 80% and keep his 20% as explained on the site.
And i wanna thank him for the service he gave me, very professional and very fast.
