I have 1 ETH in an Ethereum Wallet. I would like to transfer it, but I am unable to get the wallet functions to work due to another issue. (Mist not recognizing my 1 ETH) I know the wallet address and the password. Is there someway to recover the ETH, into another account or service somewhere?

  • going down in flames here. already lost one ETH like this, when geth crashed last time and took keys with it. This wallet is still up and showing 1 Eth. Mist will not allow me to post any contracts though. see my other unanswered questions

the password isn't enough you need to to restore the KEYSTORE and then you could move to another wallet or a online service (like https://www.myetherwallet.com/#view-wallet-info). keystore location :

Linux: ~/.ethereum/keystore
Mac: /Library/Ethereum/keystore
Windows: %APPDATA%/Ethereum

  • @ubiquitousDave: Good thing you kept the actual wallet/keystore file: it's what you need in addition to the password.
