I don't know if it worth to revive this topic, but let's give it a chance.
When I try to work with the reddcointools, which are basicly the same as the bitcointools... I always end up getting a syntaxError : unexpected character after line continuation character.
This is very new to me and I would be happy if someone could give me some direction in it.

Next time just start a new topic.

When I try to work with the reddcointools, which are basicly the same as the bitcointools... I always end up getting a syntaxError : unexpected character after line continuation character.
This is very new to me and I would be happy if someone could give me some direction in it.

As far as i am concerned, bitcointools is for bitcoin and reddcointools is for reddcoin ?
We need a few more information about how this error occured. Did you just run a tool? Or did you write a script?
If you wrote a script by yourself, then as the error message is stating: There is an unexpected character (where it shouln't be).
If you could post the snippet of your code where the error appears, it would be much easier to help you.
If you just ran a (downloaded) script and you get this error, then the tool is 'broken'. But still.. a code snippet would help to find the mistake.

This thread is too old and must be closed.
But since I'm seeing that they didn't got an anwer, I'll say it.

Do not import a corrupted file cause the problem might be the file itself.
The original wallet.dat must be still in the drive where it become corrupted.

Corrupted files inside external hdd or SSD/flashdrives can be recovered as long as the problem isn't the hardware itself.

Most HDDs will produce bad sectors randomly if fed by incorrect voltages which most external enclosures had.
To recover the wallet.dat from corruption, connect it internally (remove the HDD from the enclosure), if you use Sata Power make sure the orange cable is there (there are too many myths that it's not req by the hdd). This way it's getting enough power and run the way it should be.

Once tye HDD is working (Hardware) perfectly, it's time to recover your file.
If it is SDD/flashdrive, skip the 1st part.
Google for the correct forums for them.
-> if it's just a corrupted wallet.dat, a simple DISK CHECK will fix it.
-> if it got deleted, you can use recovery tools depending on your hdd.
-> Things will get complicated if the disk's Mbr was corrupted.


We don't want this to become a computer technical discussion so, there you go.
