Several years ago I was very interested in the NXT/ARDR/IGNIS project. Life in 2017 wasn't very kind to me on a very personal level, and I stepped away from the world of crypto entirely to focus on real life issues. 4 or 5 years have passed, and I have stumbled upon my old NXT and ARDR stash that was stored using the old MyNxt installation on an old hard drive.
I have a backup saved on my pc, as well as a couple of photos I took of my private key.
Unfortunately, the private key I took a photo of is NOT my wallet, and it is an empty wallet.
I am hoping that I was a little more intelligent with backing up my wallet file.
I have a couple of backup files which are .json file type.
How can I go about extracting my backup and seeing if it actually is the backup of my wallet?
This is a real grasp at straws here, but I used an email address to register back then, which I can prove via a photo of the contents of my wallet ( my email address is visible in the dashboard which is the same email address I used to register here ).
I understand that if I have not backed up the right wallet, that I probably don't have any chance of recovering my wallet, but there is no harm in asking.
Its literally been a number of years, and I am aware of how careless I was, but I hope there is a chance I can recover these assets.
Thanks a lot in advance for any help that anyone is willing to give, I really appreciate it.
