Daedalus Mainnet version 5.2.0 will not completely synch with the Nework

My Daedalus Wallet will no longer Synch on my iMac or my Windows Laptop. It gets stuck on “Replaying ledger from on-disk blockchain”. The sync will begin and then it loses connection to the network when it reaches from 38% to 79% completed. This is very frustrating and I have done all of the following:

  • Deleted all of the folders within the “Daedalus State Directory”.
  • Deleted the Daedalus Mainnet Folder.
  • Uninstalled the Daedalus Wallet software
  • Re-started the system
  • Re-installed the appropriate version 5.2 from https://daedaluswallet.io
  • Recovered my Wallet using my 24 Word Passphrase
  • Launched Daedalus Wallet to begin re-synch.

Is there anything anyone advise me of in order to be able to get my Wallet to completely load. It don’t have an issue with my home internet connection or accessing anything as my upload and download speeds are fine.

Also, I just ran through all of these steps again and started the re-sync. The system got all the way up through Epoch:265 and then it lost connection to the Network. It just reconnected, 10 minutes later and started resynchronizing at Epoch: 220.

I’m concerned that I will not be able to access the Cardano I have staked because of these faults.

Please advise.

Does it say that it looses connection or is it just stalled? It can take days for Daedalus to sync and the progress will therefore be very slow, so slow that the percentage does not move, in the later more densely used stages of the blockchain.

If you don’t have a specific reason to use Daedalus, just use one of the light wallets: https://developers.cardano.org/showcase/?tags=wallet

You do not have to move anything. You can just import/restore with your Daedalus seed phrase in Eternl, Typhon, or Yoroi. (Some of the others will be more complicated, since they use single-address mode and won’t see all of your funds.)

The staking is also not in Daedalus, but on the blockchain and can be managed by any of them.


Thank you for the suggestion. Since I’ve been with Cardano I’ve only used the Daedalus Wallet. I was able to connect via the Cardano Typhoon Lite Wallet.

Much Appreciated


I’m having the exact same issue as Sunshine8855. Plus, I naively sent a bunch of Cardano to it without knowing about all this “syncing” BS. It’s my own fault. But my “replaying ledger from on-disc blockchain” is stuck at zero for hours now and this is after 2 days of syncing to 83%. I’m very upset with this system being sooooooo cumbersome.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
