I had a node running. The HDD, crashed and had to get it replaced. I setup a new node now, and used the seed to restore my wallet. However, the channels were not closed properly at the time of the crash.

How can I get my funds back? It's a small amount (0.003 BTC) but still wonder if it is possible. Money has not returned to the wallet, and the channel is not active for a week now.

Your environment

version of lnd

That doesn't appear to be a valid version of lnd.

If you have your seed (from lncli create), then you'll be able to obtain your on-chain balance. See this issue for the progress on static channel backup, which will allow you to recover most of the off-chain balance from your existing channels: #175.

I mean version 0.4.2. Sorry about that. :-)

Will look into the issue. Thanks.
