Thank you for your detailed and precise help. I will certainly follow the first five rules of crypto in the event I survive this ordeal.
Here’s the screenshots of the searches:
I tried a couple of ways to get these to you. I hope they work better than they look.
I’m encouraged by the Reddcoin.dat file dated 4/2. That would be before the loss. I copied it to my Reddcoin folder.
The search for wallet.dat provided unexpected results. I have wallets with Neblio and NLC2 but apparently no dat file for NLC2.
Thank you for sending the information on backing up the file and extracting private keys. I had not seen that before and would have done it if I had. Other apps with private keys have seemed a bit more forthcoming on their importance.
Trying to fix my problem myself, I opened up my Reddcoin Wallet looking for a way to load a dat file. It was 40 hours behind and renewed itself. However, none of the menus offered a novice like me that opportunity.
If we can do anything with the Reddcoin.dat file, I’ll need your help to do it.
