Syncing Fix for Obsidian Qt Wallet Windows10
2 -Thanks to @TheVoice






This is based upon Pixxl’s guide – these are the Github notes


Solution 2 – Your wallet started syncing but is stuck at a block/percentage and does not download more blocks after you tried Solution 1

The reason could be you are synced with an old, abandoned chain. To resolve this, you must delete the old chain and start over.

  1. Be really sure now you create a new backup of your wallet.dat file!!!
  2. Find your wallet data folder:

For Windows: locate %APPDATA%\Roaming\ObsidianQt in the Explorer.

For macOS: navigate to “/Users/USERNAME/Library/Application Support/ObsidianQt”, e.g. using Finder (Go menu -> Go to Folder).

For Linux: navigate to the hidden .obsidian directory in your home directory and be sure to use the right user, e.g. yourname, root.

  1. Delete the contents of the ObsidianQt folder
  2. Copy your wallet.dat from your backup back into the ObsidianQt folder.
  3. Start the wallet application again.
  4. If it does not sync after 5 minutes, try Solution 1
