Ran into bad luck/Wallet issues

Postby scribesunlimited » Tue Jan 02, 2018 12:45 am

Hello:

A few years ago, I lost a hard drive in a crash, and sadly all of my info about my wallet. I CAN look at a "cold wallet" report from the Ripple Desktop Wallet, since I still have my wallet key, but...I can't figure out how to do anything. I had about 12K ripples in there, and I can see the account, but I cannot access it. I tried to work something out with Gatehub but I didn't get much help. Does anyone know what I can do? Have I lost everything? :bah:

Do you mean you still know your address (starting with "r...") or do you have your actual key (starts with "s..." - if you have that one, do NOT post it here)?

I found the secret key and ripple key. Whew.

Alright, now what do I do, I'm like 4 years out of the game here. :D

That secret key is your account. You can use it on nearly any wallet out there to regain access.
