How can I access my data after a dApp ceased to exists

Hi all,

I’m currently using pDrive, XORdrive and some other storage apps.

But how can I access my data after an app like pDrive would cease to exist?

Right now, you’d need the CLI. You’d use the gaia_dump_bucket command to download all the files in the bucket. You will need your seed phrase handy to do this. For decrypting files that were stored encrypted, you should use the gaia_getfile command for now.

I’m currently getting Non-base58 character error when trying to read an encrypted file with the stx-cli. Any thoughts to why?

stx gaia_getfile $ADDRESS_ID $DAPPURL v5-data/dashboards.json “$appKey” 1 0

For what it’s worth, stx whois throws an error as well.
