Rebooted OS from new SSD. Old rewards gone forever?

I recently installed Catalina on a new SSD to speed up my old iMac. I am using the same computer, but booting the OS from the faster external drive. I downloaded Brave browser immediately on the new SSD, as it is my preferred browser and why not get some rewards while I’m at it. Is there anyway that I can “log in” to the browser to continue where I had left in regards to collecting BAT rewards? Or are all of the unclaimed rewards I had built up throughout the month of April gone forever? I’m still new to all of this and am hoping I just don’t know how to do it right. Thank you

*I tried logging in to my Uphold account, but that only displayed the BAT I had claimed from March (the first month I started using Brave/Uphold).

**If I cannot transfer over the balance I was working on for April, do I sign up again and link the info from this browser to my old Uphold account to start collecting BAT rewards again?

@eljuno please help? I’ve posted 3 times with no response from anyone. Just looking for help and hopefully an answer.

Had to delete brave cause it was not opening, and I lost all BAT.

Let me know if you tried @JohnDproof suggestion @randallhervey.

@eljuno @JohnDproof I have entered my secret backup phrase multiple times and a prompt tells me to re-enter keys or to try different keys.

@randallhervey, the point is that a new installation of brave will probably have another recovery key, if you didn’t backup your previous key then you can’t recover your lost bats :confused:… I think so, hope you had not lost too much :sweat_smile:

but now you will be more prepared next time :grin:

@JohnDproof Yes, I entered the recovery key from my previous browser. Oh well, it’s only a handful of USD.
