[Ethereum] Lost the Seed Words for MetaMask


I am very shocked. After a crash on my computer, I lost my Seed Words file to access my MetaMask account. However, I found a Keystore file (UTC or json file), but when I import it into MetaMask I can not find my Ethereum. I'll get another ETH adress and there is no ETH in my wallet.. How is this possible? And how do I get back into my old account without Seed Words, but with UTC keystore file? If this succeeds, it will make me very happy!

Kind regards,

There is unfortunately nothing you can do to recover your wallet at this point,
The seed phrase is the only way to restore your account.


The Seed Words for accounts is the primary way to back up multiple accounts, Keystores are for individual accounts.
