    Fluttercoin wallet.dat recovery

    One of my wallet.dat backups is broken because I did the backup while fluttercoin was still running. (Or shutting down)

    Did anyone ever successfully recover a fluttercoin wallet.dat? (I know there are tools out there for bitcoin[1] but I tried them yesterday and they didn't work with fluttercoin)

    Something in your wallet is corrupt around that block.

    Backup your wallet if you haven't

    Delete everything but fluttercoin.conf

    Sync up using fresh wallet file

    Then stop client, load your backup and start fluttercoin-qt -rescan

    Sync's ok with no wallet.dat file
    Close wallet and replace backed up wallet.dat
    Start wallet and the weird stuff happens again

    Your wallet.dat is corrupt and cannot be read properly. I suggest restoring from backup and running fluttercoin-qt -rescan, or you can try fluttercoin-qt -salvagewallet may fix it as well

    Maybe this can help.

    Seems like a similar issue that was solved this way.

    No, the fluttercoin -salvagewallet is not aggressive enough. Also Gmaxwell's salvageharder did not help. I need to extract the private keys by hand (see the above tools on github) but those need to be modified to work with FLT, I think. (Some sort of "magic number" needs to be changed)

    Alright. I'm not qualified to be much help in that matter.

    I'm sure we'll get someone with the technical knowledge to help soon.

    Is the wallet encrypted?
