On this webpage, it should normally be possible to recover the Classic password using the user_info.sah file from Seti@Home Classic.
For an unknown reason, the form doesn’t recover the Classic password anymore.

Berkeley is aware of the problem and Matt will have to try to fix it once he is back.

Best regards from Belgium,

Unfortunately it will not be fixed. That page was broken since the time the old database of Classic was brought down, some 6 months ago.
Reviving this database would ask a lot of work.

@ Luiz Henrique and @ Sutehk,

You can link your Classic account with the one of Boinc by using this form.

Combining both account will only work if you still have the Classic password and your original e-mail address of Classic, otherwise it will not.

You will need to fill in the upper part and the lower part and use the button “link to existing account”.

I've tried this several times, and it doesn't seem to work. I keep getting a "Bad password" error for my Classic account. So I logged in using my classic account, changed the password, tried again ... still doesn't work.

So, how do I merge the two accounts? Thanks!

Steve.

On that page, in the outmost upper part you need to fill in the e-mail address of Seti Classic
and in the lower part
"... or if you've already created a SETI@home/BOINC account and want to link it to your SETI@home Classic account:"
fill in

the Email address of your existing SETI@home/BOINC account
the Account key of your SETI@home/BOINC account
and your SETI@home Classic password

and use the "link to existing account" button.

If this is not working, then some of the given info is not correct.

I have some trouble with my classic account. I do not remember the password to the account and the e-mail address does not exist anymore. I also have a boinc account and would like to link the old with the new as to not loose my achievements. What can be done?

Is seti classic the seti@home screensaver that I had running of my computer (I think) like 3 years ago. I cannot access any of my old account even though my email is still the same. Can anyone help? Thanks. Michelle

Yup, that's the same.

Try using this form.

Or better yet, if you use your old email to log in with, you should get your account with the Classic WUs in your account.

Thierry,
Has Matt made any progress on the issue with recovering the old Classic password so that accounts can be merged? That reply was dated Oct 22 and I know it is only the 31st, but is there any date for resolution?
Thanks,

The special form to recover the password is not available anymore. Matt will not be able to fix it. Sorry I don't have any better news.

Well, I've tried some 87 times to retrieve my lost password to link my OLD and my NEW accounts. No go.

...Since I can't link the two, I'd like to make my old account go away. Is THAT possible?

No Scientists never delete anything, but if you can log into it, I think the answer to that is no you cannot, you could change the info in it to something false though.

So there is no way to get your account merged? I have my password to the classic account but when I use the form when I put in the password and supply a email it says on the next page to supply an email?

Thanks

Alas, it sounds like you have the misnomer that you will get BOINC credit for your Classic credit. This is not true. Your Classic credit will show on your account (click my userid on the left and you will see what I mean), but we all started at 0 on BOINC.
