    I found out about DCR at the very beginning of all of this. At that time I decided to buy some DCR and signed up for the Airdrops. Unfortunately, I hadn't time to care about DCR, because of school. However, I came back with a few questions, I didn't receive my Airdrops, nothing. I contacted several people, but never received a response. Now, I'm back again. Finally, with a potentially lost seed. It's hard to remember the details, so I'm not sure, wether my details contain the seed or not.
    Finally, my question is: Who should I contact, to find out if there is a way to restore my wallet. I only have the raw codes from the registration (not even all), but I have no clue what they are and do.

    EDIT: I can also provide proof that I'm the actual owner of the address, maybe this helps.

    Firstly, do not share any information potentially confidential or sensitive relating to your wallet with anyone.

    You must have your 33 word seed or its related hex. Without either, you're SOL. Only those two things can recover a wallet. If you think you have either of those, go to decred.org, download the Decrediton wallet, and enter the seed or hex. Note that the hex is not your wallet address which starts with Ds.

    Lucky for you I'm in the midst of finalizing my bachelors in cyber security. I would not move anything where you had your seed / wallet installed.

    What happened to the wallet?
    Was it uninstalled?
    Was it encrypted?
    Still have the hard drive?
    Have you formatted anything?

    What exactly is it that you have lost?
