BAT disappeared after new Brave installation. Wallet file?

I’m hoping someone might be able to help.

I recently reinstalled Windows 10 and after reinstalling the Brave browser and entering the passphrase, all of my non-pending BAT failed to appear.

I still have all the files from my original installation. Is there any particular file or folder that might contain some kind of wallet file that contains my missing BAT?



you should find a folder called BraveSoftware in your old machine data under your username
then AppData/Local/BraveSoftware
you copy that folder to your current user name folder same location

by the way appdata is hiddin folder

but wait to anyone of the team to confirm that as i do not have windows to test it

hope that help and have a nice day

I have a little different Problem. My old Handy is damaged and I got a new one. I have used Google cloud, but by the new Brave-Installation, i have lost all my BAT. I have veryfied Uphold, but there is no Balance in my Portfolio. Please, help me, too.
Best Greetings

The estimated Bat should be credited to uphold. If not, your bat goes vain.

if you have passphrase you can restore the estimated bat that you have in old browser.

if you have any bat in uphold, only that can been seen after verifying in the new browser.

Thanks @Rohit552. Do you know if the BAT from my old browser is stored or associated with some file? I guess I’m wondering how the Brave browser associates BAT rewards with a particular installation of that browser.?

Oops, Idk any knowledge on the associated files. If your old device comes to working state, then you might be able to get that for sure…!!

Click on the settings icon in the below image:

And paste if you have any pass code in the restore tab like below and click on restore.

Hope your fine them asap.
