Wallet is corrupt (Closed)

Thanks chinnybob for offering to help. Files are officailly gone :-[

I will get straight to the point, I formatted my hard-drive and installed a fresh OS. This is where I messed up because I forgot about the coins in 2 of my wallets and DID NOT back up the wallet.dat files.

I have already recovered both of those wallet.dat files as well as a 3rd and 4th one that I don't think had but 0.003 btc in it and have all 4 files. Details on the wallet files I recovered:
Type Amount File-Size
Litecoin 5,000+ 2,232 kb
Bitcoin unknown 104 kb
Namecoin 50+ 104 kb
I0coin unknown 800 kb
Although I have recovered the files, it seams that they are now corrupt. I was wondering if anyone thinks they can recover the keys from the Litecoin wallet. It is only 1 address that holds 5,000+ ltc in it. If you think you are up for recovering the keys from this corrupt file then just let me know and I can provide the wallet.dat file.

As for the Bitcoin, Namecoin, & I0coin wallet.dat files, I have NOT tried to use them and do not know if they are corrupt or not.

You will be the only one to try besides me.
I will upload the wallets in a zip and pm you the link.
If you can get them working or get the coins, they are all yours :)
Anyways best of luck to you gettng them working... expect the pm soon.


Looks like I have already deleted the files, can't find them on any of my systems.
Sorry about that, I guess I grew impatient once I could not get them.
