I'm running an instance of cardano-wallet which is already pointed at my Daedalus node socket. Would it be safe/possible to point to the wallets directory of Deadalus via the --database argument?


I've tried a couple times now and it seems this is not possible. It does not corrupt Daedalus's database but throws errors instead.

Unexpected error following the chain:
user error (restoreBlocks: given chain isn't a valid continuation.
Wallet is at: [...] but the given chain continues starting from: [...])

As long as you have your recovery phrase backed up in a secure place, you can always restore your wallet in case the Daedolus directory gets corrupted. So there's no problem with using cardano-wallet with your Daedolus files.
