Please me help, I am desperate.
I had Bisq installed on older computer (Windows 8.1) from December 2017. The last time when I turned on the program was be approx 19.february.2018.
In Bisq built-in wallet, I have some small money in Bitcoin currency.
I have made backups direct from Bisq interface from December 2017 and February 2018. The last backup have name “bisq_backup_2018-02-19-XXXXXX” (X - some number).
I remember that I typed passwords? (protection for wallet?) somewhere in Bisq… I have this passwords noticed.
Yesterday I tried to run Bisq after almost three years.
I created a backup before running Bisq, I backuped both directory C:\users\dogwolf\appdata\local\Bisq\ and C:\users\dogwolf\appdata\roaming\Bisq\
Of course, I assumed that the three old years program would not work.
I run the old Bisq on, program started running but remained standing and wrote: “Couldn’t make a Tor connection.”
I uninstalled old Bisq and deleted folders (I have a backups of these folders) C:\users\dogwolf\appdata\local\Bisq and C:\users\dogwolf\appdata\romaing\Bisq and install new Bisq from webpage.
I run the new Bisq, program started successfully and I closed Bisq.
From my manually backup C:\old_bisq_backup\appdata\roaming\Bisq\btc_mainnet\wallet
I copy file “bisq_BTC.wallet” to:
I don’t remember if I deleting bisq.spvchain file.
Next… I run new Bisq, the program works, but I had “no money in my wallet”, it is possible that the program also reported an error with the some XML document…
After 1 minute I turn off Bisq and deleted bisq.spvchain and run program on again.
Later, I Delete SPV file and resync from button on the Network info tab of the Settings in Bisq interface.
After my experiments, if I tried to run the program, new Bisq will not start but it is stopped on startup screen with text: “Connecting to Bitcoin network…” with no result.
I assume that I need to uninstall new Bisq and delete both directories with data in “appdata” and install new Bisq again.
But I need to restore my old wallet from my backup (from old Bisq 2018) to new Bisq.
(As I wrote above, old Bisq of February 2018 will not start.)
Can you please help me? How restore an old wallet from backups?
I don’t want to lose my small money in BTC.
Thank you for help.
