This question already has an answer here:


I am not exactly sure what I need to do and I do not want to accidentally overwrite my disk. I may have already done so.

After searching my web history I have found the BTC address that my BTC is on but obviously I can't access my wallet. Before I formatted my hard drives I used easeus disk clone and I cloned it on 2, maybe 3, separate hard drives. But it didn't seem to work properly. I have scanned those drives and found what I believe is the file that holds my wallet but whenever I copy/paste my wallet.dat file, Bitcoin Core does not load up and I am not even sure if that's the right file anyways. I have a lot of money in that wallet and I really need to get it back.

    How to recover my wallet questions are asked probably weekly on this site so if the other answers didn't help you, you should explain what you've tried – JBaczuk Jun 23 at 4:28
