Problems with Daedalus - wallet is vanished

Need help please.
I delegated my ADA to a pool and generated my first stakes in the last epoch via Daedalus Mainnet.
Since the last Daedalus update about three days ago (3.2.0) my wallet is no longer displayed to me (it was until I closed Daedalus and opend it again).
I can open Daedalus without any problems, , it just doesn’t show me my wallet anymore.
The only choices I have is “create new wallet” “pair” and “restore”, “import” is grayed out and not clickable.
I tried to restore the wallet and entered my recovery seed correctly but the next step where I normally just have to name my wallet and set a new password, gives me the error message (“an error occurred”).
I have already completely deleted and reinstalled Daedalus because the same error message keeps coming up. (Blocks are synced 100%)

What is the reason for this error and how can I fix it?
How can I check if my funds are save? Do I have to worry about my staked ADA?

Thanks in advance, I really hope that the problem can be fixed.


Hey it seems like there is a bug with Daedalus Mainnet 3.2 because there are a few other guys with the same problem.

Id recommand you to try to restore your wallet via or Yoroi to make sure you have the correct seed before you uninstall Daedalus Mainnet (via that guide Uninstall Daedalus – IOHK Support).



You were right it was an update problem that could be fixed by deleting the state directory.

(if someone has similar problems thanks to the update)

Thank you and also to the terrific IOHK support !

Glad you were able to resolve the problem :slight_smile:

Have a nice day!

This was very helpful thank you. I have a similar problem but in Daedalus mainnet version 4.0.4#17475. I refreshed my wallet after not looking at it for a couple weeks and my wallet had disappeared. my old byron wallet was there by the shelly wallet i created after that was gone. i had been staking there as well.

I went to +add wallet and attempted to restore my wallet with the recovery phrase. It seemed to have verified it and let me move on to creating a new name and password. i entered the new info and all i keep getting is. “error occurred” . i tried several times with the same error. i thought i’d been hacked but saw people recommend i tried my recovery phrase there and it worked. thank god.but by staking rewards don’t seem to be included there. anyway, i would assume this is a daedalus issue and i didn’t get hacked since i can see the coins now in adalite. phew! i want to get my daedalus walle up and running tho. any help from the community would be very helpful. thanks in advance


My apologies. i closed out the wallet and reopened it and noticed there is a version 4.0.5, it appears the wallet is there now.


exactly as you described, placed secret, chose pass, → An Error Occurred.
restart →
all good :open_mouth:

I am not sure what happened to my Daedalus but the problem is similar to the problem people were having in this threat. I reinstalled Daedalus and since then my wallets are not showing up. Today, I started Daedalus and it started syncing. At 99.8% my wallets were visible. Once it got to 100% my wallets were gone. I have the recovery phrases to my wallets and am going to try to delete the directory to see if that fixes the problem.

This happened to me as well

Im having the same issue. My wallets has gone , i have my recovery phrase but that doesnt help either. How exactly do you delete the state directory please…

Any help appreciated people.Thanks

Actually i just quit it then restarted and now it works …Awesome
