remembered that I tried mining bitcoin years ago
boot up my old hard drive which has been collecting dust
ufasoft wallet
there's a backup that I made
getting real giddy, there could be like 50-100 BTC
"Enter passphrase" to import backup
I'm 24 now
I think I tried mining when I was 16-17
can't remember my stupid old passwords

when internet safety nerds recommend that you use a different password for every site and change it monthly they forget the downsides

unless you were mining in 2010 and/or had a serious mining rig i doubt you had more than a few BTC on there.

I did the same shit and had ~12 BTC on an old hard drive from when I was living at my mom's.

literally no clue where the drive is now.

Didn't really think it's possible to be honest, any pointers? I don't need to be spoonfed just a finger at the right direction

I have 14 BTC since it was at $400 a coin.

So, since 2014 or so.

I mined them with 2 HD 7950, and forgot about them.

I have 7 litecoin I mined ages ago that I can't access. If it ever gets to > $1000 I'll probably try this out on it.

The key to remembering is self-hypnosis. Get yourself in a relaxed state, without distractions of any kind. A dark cool room is best.

Practice no-thought meditation for an hour or so.

Then visualize your life during the period. Sometimes it helps to have cues, little things collected during the period. Pictures help. Close your eyes and explore your memories but focus on the way you felt at the time. Really inhabit your old body, your old mind. Just allow yourself to remember every detail possible.

Its in there OP. It is in your memory banks

Hypnosis might also work, I'd try the above method first

If all else fails, Ouija board

Or even retail data recovery services

Hypnosis is real, ouija board is a meme.
Might be quite hard to pull something like this off though.

I may be stupid, is this a wallet file at all?

yes

and in my experience, when they are only that size, they are not encrypted

Looks like it. You can email it to me and I'll take a look at it.

Wink wink.

make a copy somewhere else, before you do anything else

then download the wallet, install it, and override the wallet.dat that it generates (in %appdata%\bitcoin\) restart the wallet, and wait 2 days or whatever until it updates
This is if this is from the bitcoin core wallet.
I only have experience with the core wallets though

If you found this useful you can tip me:
