My wallet disappeared over a year ago with 200+ LTC in it, possibly due to me running CCleaner for Mac over my machine (which looks for and deletes .dat files as part of its sweep as far as i can tell). I have made several attempts to locate my wallet including using Photorec and dumping the existing wallet.dat, but to no avail. I am going for one last chance attempt to recover it before giving up and moving on.
I am attempting to use
pywallet to recover the wallet from my machine by issuing the following,
sudo ./pywallet.py --datadir=/Users/patrickquinn/Library/Application\ Support/Litecoin/ --recover --recov_size 121.3Gio --recov_device /dev/disk0 --recov_outputdir /Users/patrickquinn/Desktop/Looking --otherversion=48
Read 121.3 Go in 58.5 minutes Found 0 possible wallets Found 0 possible encrypted keys Found 1640 possible unencrypted keys
and left two files,
pywallet_partial_recovery_1388812907.dat in the specified 'Looking' directory.
Can these unencrypted keys be recovered or am I snookered?
