I was able to finally resolve it last night… it appears at some point my wallet tried to repair itself, and closed at the same time in a rebuild or something. I am not sure how or why, but that seems to be the most likely culprit… After re-importing my wallet, one needs to be EXTREMELY patient here and I think this is where the continued issues come in as there is no information that it takes nearly 2-3hrs(EVEN WITH AN SSD!) to restore a wallet.
I’ve also discovered that the Daedalus folder has over 700,000 files in it… This is absolute insanity and is about one of the most inefficient wallets i’ve ever used. This needs some SERIOUS refactoring and love. On the bright side, after about 6hrs i was able to get my wallet recovered and working…
The other confusion here is that after “Restoring Wallet” the create wallet window doesn’t go away and covers up the spinning icon which says, “Restoring Wallet” so it appears, that after restoring the wallet, absolutel nothing happens, and you can’t click anything. Just sitting for 2-3hrs after that, and finally my wallet appeared.
My system is no slouch, so this is inefficiencies in the Daedalus wallet. i7 4790k, 16GB DDR3, SSD, GTX970.
