Restored wallet - two channels won't close

Hi,

I bricked my SSD, screwed it up more and needed to restore.

I followed the troubleshooting guide using a backup I download a few days before the crash.

I’ve recovered most of my funds but two channels won’t close. It’s been ages (like months).

I can see them at http://umbrel.local/lightning with status ‘closing’. They show zero local and remote balance. The peer and channel capacity is displayed.

Worried that maybe these aren’t being forced closed because my backup had the wrong state or something?

Any help would be appreciated.

Sometimes channels can take more than usual to release the funds from a closed channel.
You can check the status and the height block when funds will be released by a command line.
Please see in the troubleshooting manual the steps you need to do, to find those channels status.

Hi Darthcoin

They are still stuck. I followed the troubleshooting and the output of the ‘waiting_close_channels’ are here. I removed the capacity amounts and node address from the output - substituted them with [REMOVED]. Everything is otherwise copy / paste.

Do you know what could be happening here? Did I backup incorrectly or these channels have already closed? Maybe I lost the funds for closing via backup with the wrong state?
should i force close them?
