Hi, I have a few bitcoins that I bought years ago when they were around $200 each. Sadly though I can’t find them. I do remember I put the private key in a .txt file somewhere. What would be the best way to find it? (Yes, I know it was dumb to put private key in .txt file, but this was before bitcoin was worth much so I didn’t really care)
I’ve already tried pretty much everything to find them. I went through a few reformats of my OS as well since then. This was on my old desktop which I don’t use anymore. I’m wondering though if there’s a sliver of a chance to find it. (In windows it does save old reformat files in windows.old folder if you choose to keep it, so I was looking through all of that..)
Also, I do recall I had the [blockchain.info](https://blockchain.info) app on my old android phone back then.. I’m wondering if I could mess with that somehow to get access to wallet.
I’m pretty bummed about this as I didn’t expect bitcoin to reach these prices lmao. I just liked the technology back then. Thanks for your help.
