So I'm trying to do some pre-emptive investigation toward being able to recover bitcoin wallet files. Specifically from the bitcoin core program that was used by the early bitcoin miners. It's not looking terribly difficult to write a custom xml for R-Studio to scan for them, but I'm not certain if some of the header information may be region & or machine specific and might vary from install to install.
Is anyone out there with some sample wallet.dat files I could use for cross-analysis with what I already have?
Just empty wallets (preferable older ones from earlier versions of the program than the latest version) is fine, but if you wish to leave some coin in there for me that's fine too.
I'm just hoping to have an xml that's as universally accurate as possible.
