recovering lost coins
I recently had a hard disk problem and lost my wallet and coins. And, although I thought I was backing up the wallet, it was not on the backup media. OK, my bad won't make that mistake again.
Now have gotten things running again with a new wallet address. I had resigned myself to losing the coins. However, today I discovered the old wallet address and that it was tied to my CPID. Is it possible to somehow recover these coins from the old wallet address without a backup? If so, I suspect this has been discussed before but haven't been able to find the information. Any info appreciated.
