Did you lose your bitcoin wallet? Well don’t despair yet! You may yet have a way to save it!
Everyone says to backup your wallet. And you didn’t. Now you are in quite the pickle, aren’t you? Depending on how you lost it, you might have a way of saving your lost wallet. If it has been wiped from your hard drive by a system update, or a reformatting, or something to that effect, it might not yet be truly lost! There is recovery software you can use to save it. Recuva is an example of this (and best of all, it is free).
First, install the software on your computer using a drive that is different from the one you want to recover your wallet from. Ideally you would use a USB drive to do this. In fact, if you can download it to directly to your USB drive, that is even better. The more data that is put on the reformatted drive, the more chance your wallet will be lost forever.
