Hello gurus,

I would really appreciate some pointers on what I have done wrong here, I have spent many hours reading and re-reading the tutorials and I don't seem to be getting very far.

To summarise I am looking to Bruteforce a bitcoin hash with a password which starts with:
a capital letter -- (then has a bunch of lower case letters) -- then has the digits 1106 -- followed by 4 further random digits -- ending with two symbols ie ~@

The password should be between 4 and 30 characters long.

This is my hcmask file contents:


This is my command line:
hashcat64.exe -a 3 -m 11300 dash.hash test.hcmask -o cracked.txt --session test1

I wasn't getting anywhere with the increment flags at all... looked at this way too long now and I would really appreciate another set of eyes on what I have so far. Hashcat completes it's search after just 7 seconds. What silly mistake have I made? Thank you very much in advance!

problem 1: hashcat cannot find your test.hcmask file
problem 2: you are dead long before that attack is finished
Please make sure that you provide the correct path to the file "test.hcmask" otherwise it will be interpreted as a literal mask specified on the command line (not a mask file: .hcmask).

If you specify the correct path (maybe try with absolute path if not working with relative path), the status should look something like this:

Guess.Mask.......: ?u?l?l?l?l1106?d?d?d?d?s?s [15]
Guess.Queue......: 1/15 (6.67%)

note the Guess.Queue saying that there are 15 masks in total.

tl;dr make sure that the damn .hcmask file path is correct!
knew I'd looked at that far too long. Thank you very much guys!
