How to Re-Sync Lux Wallet and Upgrade to Mercury V5 (Lux-Qt v5.0.2 Mercury)

Here is a quick one people!

Luxcore team have successfully hard forked at block 299500 and Mercury V5 was born when block 300001 was reached, once with that new wallet and miner software was released by the devs. I found on discord channel that many of you have problems syncing the new Lux Qt wallet (currently Lux-Qt v5.0.2).

I decided to make a short tutorial regarding this, explaining to everyone step by step is very time consuming. If you have questions please comment below.
