Lost funds after restoring bitcoin wallet from seed

Lost funds after restoring bitcoin wallet from seed
Hello,
I was hoping someone here could help me with an issue with electrum. I created a bitcoin wallet, wrote down the seed, but forgot to write down the password I created.
I took a picture at the time of the address in the receive section (pic attached). I went to a bitcoin atm and deposited some money. I came back to my house, found that I did not have the password, and attempted to restore my wallet. The wallet that I have restored from the seed does not have any funds. Strangely, I don't see the address listed in the address section of the restored wallets. I do see that a transaction was made to the address (I was able to create a watching only address, a picture of which I have attached).
I have tried to set the change gap limit to a very large number. I have also ran "ismine("the bitcoin address")", which returned false, confusingly. The network icon is blue/green in the bottom right.
Do you people how this address would change and not be in the restored wallet?
Any suggestions on possible solutions? Thanks for the help.

here's the address i used, took a screencap before depositing

screencap showing that the deposit took place

Restoring Bitcoin wallet question. Centbee, handcash, cashpay. If Google playstore or IOS apple store remove wallet apps. How can you restore your wallet with the backup 12 phrase words?

Hi guys. When you create a wallet using handcash / centbee / cashpay. You are given 12 phrase of words as backup and able to restore in any phone with the same wallet apps.
Example scenario I had my bitcoin store in Handcash apps.
One day I lost my phone. At the same time handcash wallet apps disappear from Google store or IOS apple store. I have the original 12 phrase of words as backup. Can I restore my wallet using centbee or cashpay mobile wallet apps with the 12 phrase of words generated from handcash?
If can't, what can I do about it? Any solution?

HELP - How to restore Mycelium wallet? Balance shows $0 (no bitcoin experience)

UPDATE: I figured it out. Downloaded another app called Coinomi and entered the 12 words phrase or “seed” and my bitcoin appeared! Maybe mycelium has a glitch!
Hello bitcoin experts!! So, I have ZERO experience in bitcoin wallets and all this stuff, so please be patient with me.
Context: in 2017 I bought whatever was worth 1k of bitcoin, I was recommended to download Mycelium as my wallet (that’s a far as my experience goes with bitcoin).
Fast forward 2020 I remembered I had this “money” or whatever in there, I downloaded the app again entered the key words (that I had written down back then) and was able to enter my wallet but it shows my balance is $0. (For what I read something happens when you delete the app and re install it with the keys or whatever)
I’m under the impression that you can recover your bitcoin with your “private key”, but I don’t know how.
• I have all the key words • I have written down a bunch of numbers and letters (totaling 32 characters) in the following format: 12ab-12ab..... (with hyphens) • I also have a bunch of numbers and letters written down (over 32 characters) and no dashes
Are any of those random characters my private key? If so, where do I enter it in Mycelium? Should I enter also the hyphens? Is it where it says “cold storage”
Or is my money gone forever?
I’ll appreciate any “bitcoin 101/for dummies help you can provide!!

If I have private keys but not seed phrase, can I restore by Bitcoin wallet?

A seed phrase is just one way to restore the Bitcoin wallet but if you already have the private key, then you have, as the term “private key” suggests, the means to unlock your Bitcoin and access/manipulate it.
Many ways you can do this, and Bitamp and Electrum wallets are just 2 easy ways to use a private key to use your Bitcoin (they’re both free and open source and are self-custodial meaning to say only you have control). For both, simply choose to login or open a wallet, and choose the “private key” option.

So can you use seed words to restore a wallet from one hardware wallet onto another type of hardware wallet? Or are those device-specific? Thanks (x-post from /r/Bitcoin)

Restoring wallets on ledger; Bitcoin/Monero

So I've got a ledger nano s. When I was doing the initial setup I entered the 12 seed wallet I've always used. Once configuration was done I loaded up ledger live and installed the bitcoin app and there were no wallets under accounts.
It asked me to create a new one segwit or native segwit (no seed provided) is this my old wallet? I had a minuscule amount of coin in there (.00019661) to be exact and setting it to satoshis didn't make it appear once set up either.
Also when connecting the hardware wallet to the Monero GUI, there was no option to link it my old wallet. It just gives me the option of opening a new hardware wallet. Is there any way to link these?
And how do I recover my funds if I lose my ledger?
Ty!

Restoring a wallet.dat file

My laptop crashed, but thankfully I have several back-ups of my wallet.dat file on some USB's. It's from Bitcoin Core version .12.1.
I've downloaded version .14.0 on my iMac, but I'm not sure how to import the wallet.dat file off my USB.
Seems like it should be easy. This link says "to restore the backup, simply copy your backed up wallet.dat over an existing one in the bitcoin data location."
But I'm not sure what is meant by the bitcoin data location. Can't find it.
Here's that link: https://freedomnode.com/guides/14/how-to-backup-and-restore-bitcoin-wallet
Thanks in advance for any help.

Factory reset my phone and it backed up from the cloud. My bitcoin.com wallet was restored with all funds while my other wallets had to restore from seed. Is the bitcoin.com wallet being backed up to the cloud unencrypted in clear text?

Anyone who has access to the cloud (government) could easily access/view/steal my bitcoin. Is there something I'm missing?
EDIT with further details: This is an Android Samsung Galaxy device, using the default backup and restore function (which is enabled by default). As far as I know, Samsung backs up apps, phone settings and other stuff like notes if you use those, but not appdata (individual app settings). Google backs up the appdata so that your apps will restore with all the same settings you had before.
All of my other crypto apps came back with me having to restore from seed. Even my banking apps and any other app that requires a login & password, I had to log back in to get access.
But my bitcoin.com wallet came back with all my previous settings, as well as funds being available. This tells me that the bitcoin.com wallet is storing the seed words in plain text, and then the phone is automatically backing that into the cloud along with the app's appdata / settings.
That isn't right. It should be keeping the seed words encrypted and unable to access unless you have the same device. Any other device (including the cloud) should have that information stored in encrypted form and unable to access unless you have seed words or a password to decrypt.
IMO this is a pretty bad security decision by the bitcoin.com wallet developers. Definitely shouldn't be keeping more than like $20 in it, or anything you're okay with having stolen by hackers or seized by governments.

Having trouble restoring my Bitcoin wallet from seed using Electrum

I have an electrum wallet on my laptop, when I try and send bitcoin it asks me for a password. I have no recollection of ever using/creating one for electrum (other than my seed.)
I tried to restore from seed, but the next button is greyed out when i enter it. Indicating the seed is wrong, yet I copied it verbatim and have triple and quadruple checked it. NOTE: It is 25 words long, usually they are 12? Not sure if this is an issue.
So basically I don't know the password OR the seed, but I still have the wallet open in electrum. Do I have any hope of recovering? Or am i doomed?
It has a significant amount of money, so any help would be immensely appreciated.
