Re: Namecoind won't start with restored wallet.dat

seems that the file was in use when you made the backup to a cd. You must find the hard drive /computer you were using back then. search that with a recovery tool like recuva. I don't think you're understanding what I'm saying. That pc is long gone, I sold it 4 years ago. All I have is the wallet.d...

I've also installed the latest namecoin and copied in my wallet.dat. I've run namecoind and this time looked in the log files. I'm getting different error messages. DB....
