Restore my Wallet


#1

Hi there,

I need help to restore my Peercoin-Wallet. I have created the “peercoinwallet.dat” and I have safed it on a USB-Stick. Now my Notebook brokes down and I downloaded the Peercoinwallet again on the new Notebook. I thought, that I only have to change the “peercoinwallet.dat”, but I can´t find this data???
Could anybody help me?


#2

which operating system?
wallet.dat is normally stored in something called the datadirectory, default location is %APPDATA%\Peercoin\ on windows, ~/.peercoin on linux, you can customize it with -datadir=x:\jkafh when starting the wallet


#3

the problem is, that I can´t find this datadirectory on the pc. Perhaps I should download and install the wallet again


#4

did you run it already? it creates the directory when it is run for the first time, or you can create it manually


#5

Often on Windows, the %AppData% folder is hidden by default. You need to set your Windows Explorer to View -> Hidden Items to see it.

On my system it is C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Peercoin

YES! Now I found it! And my peercoins are in the wallet!
Many thanks!!!

The coins are in status “pending”, but I think this will be fiexed, when the wallet has updated, isn´t it?

yes it is synchronizing with the blockchain, will take a little while
