Certainly one of my wallets acquired corrupted for some cause and Bitcoin Core model v0.21.1 (on MacOS) fails to begin, suggesting I exploit the salvage pockets technique.
I have been looking on-line to see what which means, and most information suggests I begin the Bitcoin Core app from the terminal, utilizing the -salvagewallet choice. Nonetheless, this offers me an invalid argument error and the app nonetheless fails to begin.
Later I’ve learn that the salvage pockets was moved to the bitcoin-wallet device. I am assuming that is referring to the Console and it assumes I can begin the applying. To do this, I’ve moved the corrupt pockets folder outdoors the app, so I can begin it, at the very least. I’ve then tried to import the corrupt pockets, however this additionally fails.
I’ve 2 questions:
Is there an up to date technique of salvaging the corrupted pockets?
If not, or the salvaging fails, does a a lot older model of the pockets assist? This older model will, for certain, not embody most (if any) of the brand new addresses that had cash on them, however possibly Bitcoin Core has a approach of deterministically discovering these addresses from its seed when reindexing? (if that makes any sense)
