I am extremely new to Ethereum, just started mining a bit 2 days ago. I use Windows 10 and a GeForce GTX 950 card. I have had geth running smoothly for about 2 days, then it started filling up my AppData in my C drive, leaving only 4 GB of space left.
Out of desperation, I did something very stupid by trying to copy the entire AppData folder to my other drive and then I used
geth --datadir to try to direct the huge amounts of file storage go into my other drive. When I tried to run Geth, it didn't work, so I
used --datadir again to swap it back to my C drive and deleted my entire copied AppData folder on my other drive.
When I did
geth --rpc again, it said no etherbase set and no accounts found as default
and when I do the
ethminer.exe -G on another window, errors pop saying I have no set etherbase.
I have been mining for 2 days and I know it's not too much, but yesterday when I checked I had a bit of ether by using
eth.getBalance and I know all my keys and passwords and addresses and stuff are all here somewhere, but I just don't know where and how to use etherbase and re-set it up.
I tried to log in again using
personal.unlockAccount(eth.accounts, "password") but it cannot find my account. I don't even know where and how geth stores a local account.
I have my local account address on a sticky note it looks like af104bda8 etc etc (I don't think that's a key) and I remember my passphrase, my keystore folder had a file in it but after I tried copying AppData to another drive the file inside disappeared.
I'm very lost what do I do?
