I changed the password of my wallet, upon realizing that that destroyed my seed phrase, I decided to try to change it back to see if the seed phrase would come back. Now I'm locked out of my wallet with the following error:

Error: failed to load wallet: file MyWallet does not correspond to MyWallet.keys

    How did changing the password destroy the seed you wrote down on paper? Make a new wallet and import the seed, re-sync wallet, enjoy responsibly.

  • @Dave okay well luckily I did write it down, but it was just dumb luck because I changed the password right afterwards. I could have easily done it in the other order, and what would I do then?

  • So did making a new wallet and restoring the seed work? It should. (--restore-deteministic I think is the flag or something close to that)
