Recover .walletx file from external hard drive.

Recommended Posts

Hi @Davee

Welcome to the forum! Do you want to restore a .walletx file?

The .walletx file format is the backup file of Enpass v5. Please go through this link to restore the same in Enpass v6. If I've misunderstood the problem, please let us know.

Thanks.

Yes, you have misunderstood.

I had my .walletx backup files on a harddrive.

The mac time machine overwrote those.

I'm looking for a way to extract/recover these files using data recovery software however as these files are .walletx this makes it difficult as this is a non standard file type.

I was looking at adding ".walletx" as a file type to this recovery software.
See https://www.r-studio.com/creating-custom-file-type-r-studio.html.
However it's hard to assess what the start and finish signatures are of the .walletx file and I don't know what data type these files are.

Can anyone here help with that please?

Hi @Davee

Unfortunately, we won't be able to help you to recover/extract the lost backup file. However, if you wish to restore Enpass database, please let us know:

  • If you had synced Enpass data before with any of the cloud.
  • If you are using Enpass on any other device.

Thanks.

No. v5.6 so before your cloud update I think.
No. 

I don't need you to recover it, i'm asking if you can provide some information on the ".walletx" file so I can.

Hi @Davee,

.walletx files are encrypted using SQL cipher. Please click here to know more. This file is a 100% SQLite file and this doesn't have any fixed header. 

I am afraid we won't be able to assist you here and we apologize for this.

Hi Tahreem.

Yes, seems this approach is not going to work in that case.
Thanks for the info, nothing major so it's ok. Just one password I wanted to recover but now seems unlikely now.
Just an unfortunate TimeMachine backup issue. Not your fault.

Best.
