Daedalus restore wallet

I restored my daedalus wallet on my new computer but while sycing the blockchain my system crashed. After the crash my cardano wallet was gone out of daedalus and when i tried to restore it again it gives the message ‘an error occured’… Anyone who can help me with this?

Hello

Did u downloaded the last version?
Do u have the security phrase? If yes you should delete daedalus folder and download the last version again…

Before try to restart your laptop, maybe some processes were blocked

Another alternative for daedalus is yoroi wallet (laptop and mobile version). Yoroi it is a light wallet and sync faster.

Cheers

Thanks for your reply! Can i use yoroi on the new system while i’m running my wallet and staking in daedalus on my old machine?

I’ve restarted my mac and also deleted daedalus and reinstalled it again although the chain was almost instantly completely synced after the reinstall so i doubt if i deleted it the right way…:frowning: :grimacing:

Grtz, Alex

Yes u can;
And remember if you are looking for a pool to delegate

Cheers

I’ll defenitely will check you out! Many thanks for your support! I’ll go yoroi on this machine. Does my current delegation in daedalus stay the way it is when i migrate this machine to yoroi?

btw your link is overloaded! I think they’re watching!!..: :yum:

Yes, ADA should be already delegated in yoroi but it’s better to check
