about 4 years ago i bought some litecoins and saved them on my electrum wallet (could've been litecoin-qt memory is fuzzy on this)
I didn't encrypt it, but i also didnt save the private key. very stupid i know now
I know upon saving the .dat file, I re-opened it, and seeing as I had no issue with opening it, I saved left them on external hard drive, not worrying about private keys
Now, I can't open them on electrum-ltc wallet, or litecoin-qt wallet and don't really know how to go about this.
Any info on this would be appreciated.
