1  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / rescan / deleting the block database on: June 05, 2011, 09:26:25 AM
Raw newbie here. Apologies for any stupidities...

I'm having trouble moving a wallet from one machine to another. Both are Macs. I've tried using the -rescan command line option (0.3.21-beta), and I've tried deleting blk0001.dat and blkindex.dat, to no avail. Am I running up again the bug mentioned here http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=7159.0 or am I just stupid (or both)?

Here are the details:

I installed Bitcoin on Mac #1. I went to the Bitcoin Faucet and got myself 0.02 BTC. I had to wait several hours for it to be confirmed, but by the next morning, I had one line in the Bitcoin display that said "147 confirmations  05/09/2011 ... Received with: <xyzzy> .... +0.02". Looks good.

Then I installed Bitcoin on Mac #2 and ran it. This machine had its own wallet of course. So I read around a bit, found the link above, and did the following: First, I renamed the file wallet.dat on Mac #2 to something else. Then I copied the file wallet.dat from Mac #1 to Mac #2. Then I started Bitcoin on Mac #2 with the -rescan option. The line in the Bitcoin display was "0/unconfirmed  05/06/2011 ... Received with <xyzzy> ... [+0.02]". The bitcoin address <xyzzy> was the same in both. The "0/unconfirmed" didn't look right, and it didn't change after letting it sit for a few hours. So then, as suggested in the link above, I tried closing the program, deleting the files blk0001.dat and blkindex.dat (on Mac #2), and restarting Bitcoin. Same problem.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received!
