Hi Tech, i realize i stuffed up the wallet, but still, i think its still crazy how you can so easily lose them.
I never backed up the wallet before i sent coins there. But they were always in my wallet, then they just disappeared, so there must a bot of some kind which looks for coins being dumped from idiots like my self.
Anyway, it was a hard lesson learnt, i sent more ltc's to another address which was encrypted and backed up, its been over a week and they are still there. I have my wallet on an encrypted usb drive now so i should be fine.
I dont know how anyone could recover my coins, although they were sent to an address on my ltc wallet, it seems impossible to access. Its one thing seeing a transaction...but all you can do is just stare at your coins you once owned...
