    Hi,
    I'm new as usual I forgot my DashCore wallet password. No dash contained, so I'd like to simply reinstall from 0 the wallet. It is installed in Windows 64.
    I unistalled DashCore but after I install it the second time, I keep having the same encrypted password.
    Is there a way to toally remove the wallet or make a "factory reset" ?

    Thanks

    Regards

    In menu select Tools -> Show Automatic Backups. This should open the file explorer for you. Close the wallet (wait till shutdown is complete). Now go one folder up in the file explorer and find wallet.dat file there. Rename it to smth else e.g. wallet_old.dat. Now start wallet again and it should create a fresh new one for you.
