    This is not much use if you need to delete the data because your wallet wont sync, you don''t have access to this screen....

    I have written down my seed phrase, bought some Cardano a year ago (about a 1000).

    Now on the new device (because the old one doesn't exist anymore), I'm entering the same seed phrase, it restores the wallet and gives me absolutely new one with 0 balance. (I'm sure the seed phrase is correct and that I had ADA in the wallet).

    What can be wrong?

    Thanks.

    ..."worried that your all-important 12-word Daedalus wallet recovery phrase is correct, and would like to verify it."... 

     

    The wallet won't sync and won't open, no menu for restore. This is an invalid solution.  I have my12 words written down, but don't want to try until I can log in and check the recovery phrase I have, then delete and download again and restore.  Can't IOHK validate the words on some other format to the owner if given to you?.

    So, basically with the same seed phrase it creates the new wallet with 0 ADA and 0 past transactions (I'm not new to crypto)

    Not sure if this is the reason for your zero balance, but a (freshly restored from seed words) wallet cannot know the balance until it scans through the blockchain.

    I started to worry about the team qualification. 
    as others mentioned, one main reason to restore using 12-word is that you cannot open your wallet at all. And you are telling in order to check 12-word, OPEN the wallet and check the 12-word???
    If I could open the wallet why would I need to check the 12-word?

    Agreed Thanks Nick, I'm checking if delete wallet when deleting the DB folder is still required.

    When I restore my wallet using the 12 word seed, the address it produces does not match my old ADA address where all my balance is stored. Any advice?

    Some of these fundamental problems must be solved. Solving would attract greater adoption you already know. So keep up the good work!
