CANNOT RECOVER MY MTC!!help!
« on: July 29, 2018, 01:42:16 pm »
Hi all,

i reinstalled windows and download MTC wallet.I let it sync (about 2 million blocks) and after I tried to import my private key ( insertprivkey xxxxx) and I get "code":-4,"message":"Error adding the key to wallet".

Also, I tried to replace the wallet.dat file with mine but when I open MTC wallet is not opening at all, I can see it in right side taskbar but no window. Also, the process is there and eating about 30% of resources. I have stopped my antivirus as well.

Any suggestion good to come or I will be absolutely mad if I lose tens of millions even if I back up my wallet in all possible ways!

I hope Rosso or Bruce can help you on this.  It is too technical for most of members or for me to understand.

Bruce mentioned at one point that if a wallet has a lot of mining, then it is difficult to move around or even open it. Better to send MTC to another clean wallet to start over.
Wonder if you have done a lots of mining on this wallet.

you try with "importprivkey xxxxx"
(your wallet status must "unlocked")

If you have a fresh copy of windows and wallet you cannot unlock the wallet

I reinstalled windows, installed MTC. I changed the wallet for my security wallet. He was updating blocks for a long time, but everything worked correctly.

SAVE YOUR PRIVATE KEY AND YOUR .dat FILE IN MORE THAN 2 DIFFERENT PLACES! IT WILL SAVE YOUR ASS!!!
My first back up was corrupted so i tried the second one .Unfortunately my private key wont work (wallet gets stuck and no syncing) so i tried with .dat file but it didn't work as well.
The reason is because i change my wallet after sync was complete and once i start it didn't work.

So i end up doing this:

Step 1 install MTC wallet but when it starts to sync close it
step 2 replace the wallet .dat file with your back up wallet
step 3 restart your PC
step 4 start the wallet and let it sync (DO NOT STOP IT IN THE MIDDLE OF SYNC)
step 5 spend your MTC wisely

Hope my  HAPPY ENDING STORY  will help others and PLEASE SAVE YOUR WALLET!
