350 bitcoins, encrypted wallet.dat deleted - lost forever?
I know I am insanely stupid. There is no need to be upset and yell that at me through the screen. I am happy to not be a gun owner because tonight I would have killed myself. I am posting this because countless others have posted similar stories whereby they learned important lessons the hard way due to lack of technical knowledge. In my case, the reason for this lack of knowledge was likely, ironically, the same reason I bought some bitcoins: drugs. I won't get into that. What I will post is where I went wrong, and where I'm at now. Here's the full story: I had a securely encrypted wallet.dat with about 400 bitcoins on it that were purchased back at $10 or so. I pulled said wallet out of cold storage recently to cash money out of this wallet a few times to get some gift cards from gyft.com. I missed something ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL in my understanding of encrypted wallets. When you send money, your wallet.dat file changes. You ABSOLUTELY MUST make new backups before deleting this file. Please don't do what I did and simply disregard this file after making changes on the blockchain...and then, on the same PC (sigh) proceed to reinstall StarCraft II when it fails to run due to Virtu MVP being retarded, ruining any shot at recovery (NONO #2: NEVER run bitcoin on your primary machine FOR ANY REASON). I was a fool. Now I'm staring at TestDisk and File Manager in Parted Magic (linux boot disc) in total, absolute disbelief. Unless my data is stored within ".sst" files (never worked with these before and I can't figure out what they are with google, though it looks like fucking chrome shit because I leave it open all the time), which it may be, I don't know what to do. Maybe I'll try GetDataBack NTFS next. Maybe I can actually read filenames proper more effectively there? Does anyone have experience with this? I have turned off the main PC and booted it up into parted magic so there is no data being written to the drive anymore. If there is ANY shot at this wallet.dat being recovered I am not screwing myself over any more now. If anyone helps me out with this, I will compensate you generously. I am scared and lost. I never deserved bitcoin to begin with. If I can't get them back...well...enjoy the value appreciation, I guess, everyone. =( Such shame I have never felt; such guilt I may never feel again. I have tried my old wallet.dat files repeatedly before coming to the realization that encrypted wallets change with each and every transaction...and the one backup I thought I made (moved, not copied) says it is corrupt. It's easy to pretend what this feels like, but it's much worse in person. Educate yourselves and split up your wallets - now. Don't let this happen to you. If anyone is a kind soul and willing to help, feel free to PM me. EDIT: I just recovered everything with an old wallet.dat. Tonight I went full tard. Luckily, this was a throwaway. I will never forget this...all of you came together to help, to suggest, to fucking CARE. I WILL NOW TAKE TOMORROW OFF (sick day since I still feel sick as hell) TO FIX MY OTHER ISSUES WITH THE WALLET (aka putting all my eggs in one basket, keeping on a machine that is not specifically fucking made only for bitcoin, not using electrum/armory, not having my primary storage machine OFFLINE, etc.) All of you - ALL of you - are less selfish and less stupid than me. You should all feel amazing.

''' It's out as often as you want to spend from it, like in any other cold-storage setup, isn't it? Edit: You can have a permanent partition on the Tails system on which you can store the wallet/seed encrypted. The "flash storage is bad"-argument is still invalid, though, because you have to have a seed-backup (papemetal/brain/...) in all cases, no matter if you use a HW wallet or Electrum. Btw, Electrum seeds are superior to BIP39 seeds. Nobody writes down the derivation path of their wallet. Everybody just notes down the seed. Thankfully, most wallets use standardized paths, but years down the road, who knows...? In Electrum, the version is encoded in the seed itself, so it truly does restore all information needed to access the wallets funds.

This page describes the algorithm used for encrypting the wallet.dat file used in the original Bitcoin client.. Wallet encryption uses AES-256-CBC to encrypt only the private keys that are held in a wallet. The keys are encrypted with a master key which is entirely random. Electrum is a desktop wallet that focuses solely on Bitcoin. The wallet is compatible with Windows, OSX, and Linux. There is also a version available for Android. The wallet has a high standard of security. The private keys are encrypted and stored on the user’s device and kept offline. Users can also keep the wallet itself offline so that the funds are in cold storage. This means that ... Bitcoin Core developers enabled a feature inside the bitcoin client that lets you “encrypt” your wallet by protecting it with a passphrase. By using a passphrase, you “lock” your coins from being spent. Even if an attacker were to gain access to the device on which your bitcoin wallet is running, they would not be able to do anything with the funds unless they also had your passphrase. $ bitcoin-cli help encryptwallet Encrypt the wallet for the first time First we encrypt the wallet (this works for an unencrypted wallet, for an already encrypted wallet we need to use walletpassphrasechange call): $ bitcoin-cli encryptwallet "my_pass_phrase" After wallet is encrypted, server will stop.

If you wouldn't keep a thousand dollars in your pocket, you might want to have the same consideration for your Bitcoin wallet.

Backup your wallet. Stored ...
