How can I restore transactions?


I am creating daily backups of my bisq-Folder in C:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming

Today I started a new bisq transaction to buy Bitcoins using SEPA. I bought BTC from a Signed trader (signed more than 30 days ago) so that I should afterwards also be signed. I started the SEPA transfer. However I think that I forgot to click “payment started”. Immediately after the SEPA payment my computer crashed and I now cannot recover the bisq-Folder anymore. I had to reinstall Windows.

I am using Yesterday’s backup of the bisq-Folder. However today’s transaction is not in my BISQ Client now due to the crash (data loss).

My questions are:

  1. When the BTC seller receives my SEPA payment and somehow (via support?) confirms the payment, will I receive the Bitcoins somehow without the transaction in my client?

  2. And will my account be signed then?

  3. Is there any way to recove the transaction so that I can see it in my client again?

I hope somebody can help me.

I would try with a SPV resync, maybe your trade will be again available.

We usually tend to answer in shorter time at keybase Bisq support channel.
