I don’t think you’ll have much luck suing someone over software provided for free, without warranty.

That’s very unfortunate to hear. There are several alternatives to consider and this is one of them:

What are you doing with F words?
Are you losing your mind as you losing your money?This is Korean community.

I would suggest just taking a breath, and get help from support. Being mad does not last, (and it doesn’t usually effectively solve the problem).

Think through the future things that will occur as a result of today’s action. It will cost you money when no money was lost on your end. It is an inconvenience, sure, but no permanent loss of funds.

This whole space is “a work in progress “ a construction site “ for the future. Why do you think there is a road map? A finished product needs no road map. It’s there already. The return for patience will ‘likely’ be worth it.

Just think about it before you persue this course of action.

Did you do a manual upgrade to Cardano 1.3 first? If you have not done a manual upgrade since November 18th, you need to go to https://daedaluswallet.io and install the latest.


#11

For the new people that read the comments on the Daedalus wallet not working, should be taken with a grain of salt. I have no experience in software and would be considered a layperson in the field of computers. I personally think it is a great product, easy to understand, navigate and work with. I just don’t get why some people are having issues.


#12

Calss action. Are we near a Norwegian mountain because I smell trolls.


#13

I don’t think you can start a class action with one person who may or may not have a real problem with the wallet.

At the very least you’d have to show you own ADA, which, judging by your demeanor, you probably don’t.

Crypto is a volatile asset class. As an adult you would not sue companies in your portfolio whose stock has taken a beating. It’s the same thing here except the swings are more pronounced.

I don’t blame you if you can’t take the heat, but you have a maximum of $3k of actual losses you can reclaim on your taxes this year.


#14

Ridiculous post. Likely user error or the conditions do not exist for your wallet to properly function. Class action, really??


#15

Hello @CRYPTOFUSED, if you are still stuck with the upgrade, please check the known issue article on https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us. Feel free to submit a ticket if that does not help.

This works and is fast. Why restore from an old data structure. Just delete the database download the Daedulas sync the new blockchain then click restore. Should almost be instant after syncing. I had many stalls in the syncing though at least there was the message asking me if I was having trouble at the top. Stopped and started Daedalus till around 50% then fell asleep. Woke up hit restore wallet and done. Just like https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360014432734-Daedalus-1-4-Optimized-block-storage

  1. Reboot your machine to ensure Daedalus is not running
  2. Update your time with the correct internet time via settings for time and date.
  3. From the control panel type v select virus and threat protection then select Exclusion and enter the Daedalus directory. You may even turn off threat detection briefly.
  4. Type %appdata% on the explorer’s search bar, or alternatively go to:
  5. C:\Users[your user name]\AppData *
  6. Locate the Roaming folder and open it, find the Daedalus folder and open it.
  7. Locate the DB-1.0 folder and delete it. Note that this folder contains over 1.5 million files so this delete operation could take hours. So will any upgrade
  8. Once the folder is deleted, empty the trash.
  9. Download Deadalus 12.0 and install.

I have never had to delete the wallet folder so I would try that last all things considered. If you have done the above and made exceptions in windows threat detection I do not see why the wallet restoration would be prolonged. I did the above and the two wallets and transactions that I have appeared instantly when I clicked restore wallet when I woke up in the morning. So unless you have thousands of wallets in your Daedalus or something out of the ordinary…

Oh and I copied most of that information from https://iohk.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360009484874 in case your wondering. The hardest part was trying to figure out how to add an exception.

Download the newest version 1.4 0.12.0 wallet. I had the same problem with an older version. At the time the newest version was 0.11.0 and when I downloaded it everything synched up. Downloading the most recent v.0.12.0, I had to wait 2 days to reconstruct my wallet. All works fine now.


#18

I renamed the Daedalus folder to daedalus.backup, and then I downloaded and installed the latest version of the database and restored my wallet using my 12 word phrase. It took 8-12 hours to sync and under 2 hours to restore wallet. Now all is good.

Thanks for guidance.


#19

For my recovery words I have 18 words that I printed and nine words that I wrote down…Which 12 word phrase are this?


#20

Seems like you have a paper wallet which would need 27 words to recover. The 12 words that they are talking about is to recover the Daedalus wallet. Different forms to recover your wallet.
