    I don't think it will be possible, sorry. It would defeat the whole purpose of blockchain security. Wallet addresses amounts and transaction details are all publicly known. Therefore anyone could claim it's theirs... The wallet encryption password is also unrelated, I'm afraid. Can someone confirm my thinking? I'm not a dev... Still learning too.

    I was just talking with a dev. Is not possible to recover without wallet.dat file or privkey. One of both would help with this.
    So I can confirm your thinking, which I already had that feeling. So there is a bunch of XBY won´t be moving anymore... :(

    Thanks for the update. Everyone must remember, always back up your wallet.dat and private key!

    Hello.

    Try to delete everything from %appdata%/xtrabytes

    Make sure that you are using the latest wallet version 1.3.0 https://github.com/borzalom/XtraBYtes/releases/download/pre-v1.3.0.0/xtrabytes-qt.exe

    Open the wallet.

    Import your private key.

    And re-sync the blockchain, from block 0 (the manual is here https://community.xtrabytes.global/...allet-faster-with-the-bootstrap-dat-file.436/ )
