Hi. My buddy, who is Not very Tech savvy, called me, in a panic, (as He considers Me his Tech Guru… And I am no Guru, lol)… Anyways… He had a Litecoin wallet from approx 2013, on his laptop, (Windows 8) His litecoin wallet got synced, He says, and He tried to send 1 ltc to Bittrex, and it stayed “Pending” for over 12 hours, did not complete. His wallet had some message about needing an upgrade, so he downloaded a new wallet from Litecoin.org, installs it, says that he did not uninstall anything, just let the new wallet do it’s thing… Now his wallet is showing a Zero Balance. I think he said he had 50 or 60 ltc in old wallet. I don’t know if he had a backup, (I doubt he did, but I haven’t gone and looked around his laptop to try and find anything yet)… My “Non-Guru” thoughts are… The data with coins, wallet.dat, or something, Must be on his laptop… Somewhere!!! … Am I right? Or has he lost his coins? He’s in a panic, and I hope to help him this weekend. Could someone please give me some help/guidance? Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in Advance!
