How do I migrate my Bisq account to my new HDD?
My HDD (on Mac PC) is currently corrupted and I will need to reformat my whole HDD, and reinstall Bisq app. I cannot start Mac to access Bisq app interface and export accounts directly from Bisq. However:
- I can access all files on HDD using Terminal window (before system boots)
- I have Bisq seed.
copy the app directory.
On Mac you should be able to find a data directory at: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Bisq
On windows: [USER]/.local/share
After you have Bisq installed on your new HDD, replace the app data directory with your backup.
I just realized (I’m working right now on my broken Mac)
that I cannot access the HDD any longer.
Can Bisq account data be accessed using seed?
You can always recover funds with your seed.
App data cannot be recovered with the seed.
