Hello, i have a problem where i have recently moved 0.1 bitcoin on to a new install of bitcoin core .
I have set the password on the wallet to encrypt and i copied and pasted the password.
I copied and pasted the same info to a textpad.
Now i am not sure if this a serious bug or if perhaps i didnt copy and paste what i thought i did.
I dont know.
I can not send from my wallet because it is asking me for the password.
I am pretty sure i have a good idea on what it is but it might be i have a few letters wrong.
I really would imagine there can not be a bug .... or maybe my password is too long, i dont know.
Can anybody here help me to brute force the password ?
I can narrow down the characters so it should be possible.

Seems like you think the password is wrong and have a plan to get it right.
If that fails you can also try this https://github.com/gurnec/btcrecover

If you're copy and pasting your password when you entered it it should work though. Check for any trailing spaces.
