So, it seems like the safest course of action is to back up my wallet, upgrade to Core, then increase database cache.  I will want to do the Core upgrade obviously in a safe manner.

Quote
It's a setting in Bitcoin Core, just go to Options and increase database cache.
QT does not have an option to increase database cache.  I will look at doing this when I have Core.     

Quote
If you didn't update, what version are you actually running?
My version of QT is 4.8.5

Do you know what processor and how much RAM your computer has? Also, do you know if it is using an SSD (Solid State Drive) or an HDD (Hard Disk drive) for storage?
I知 using an i5 3.20GHz processor and have 12GB of RAM.  And just a regular HDD. 

Quote
Also how fast is your internet
50MB/S

Where exactly is it up to in the syncing process?
In about three weeks I went from 223 weeks behind to the current 30.  I was leaving my PC on all day and at first I was synching about 15 weeks per day then progressively slower to the point that I am now synching about three weeks per day.  Also, I was closing all of my other programs for most of the synch in the belief this would speed it up.

You may need to rebroadcast this transaction if you still want it to go through. However, if it isn't needed urgently, I would recommend that you update to the latest Bitcoin Core and wait for it to fully sync before you attempt to make any transactions.
Yes I知 pretty sure the transaction did not go through.  I知 not too worried and will do the transaction over when the time comes.

Hey there BitMaxz / community. 
Sorry I didn稚 get back to you sooner.
My original plan was to just be patient and let the QT network synch, but this had gotten progressively slower to the point that now it is so slow it has become intolerable, and getting more so. 
Now I am thinking that I should take your advice and copy my private keys to Electrum or add a "dbcache"?
This is not something that I currently know how to do. 
I guess that somewhere in QT there is a private key, then I download and install Electrum and somewhere in there will be a place to copy my private key?   
Unless adding "dbcache" is less risky?  I am willing to wait awhile for the synch, I知 not in a huge rush to use my funds, just like I said the current speed has become incredibly slow.  If so, I am running a PC with Windows 10.  Is there anything else you need to know for this?   
Wondering what the community thinks about this?  Is one of these methods less risky than the other?  Any advice or tips that I can get to help me do this would be appreciated
3  Bitcoin / Bitcoin Technical Support / Unconfirmed Stuck Transaction QT/Core / Network Synch Issue on: January 13, 2021, 04:58:18 PM
I would very much appreciate some help with a transaction. 

I made a btc transaction on QT that did not go through and is frozen.  This was to a company I have successfully used before, but it has been a few years. 
The receiver sent me a link that supposedly confirms that the payment was not made (https://blockstream.info/address/37ua6XDW8wyAMnM8rBgsKRTEECQayhmGC2).

Here are my transaction details:

Status: 0/unconfirmed
Date: 2021-01-08 11:44
To: 37ua6XDW8wyAMnM8rBgsKRTEECQayhmGC2
Debit: -0.01000946 BTC
To: Network Fee Donation 19yFRV1tSgJE2p3gQmeufntAsufatUvCs4
Debit: -0.0001 BTC
Transaction fee: -0.0001 BTC
Net amount: -0.01020946 BTC
Transaction ID: 020d601b2908df3af33a288f37965a6dceb3542173a11528b6906b1643c0d642

I'm using the older QT wallet which I am learning is upgradable to Core, I believe?  If I were to upgrade would this help my situation, and if I did the upgrade would I still be able to recover the unconfirmed transaction in the new wallet as well as my balance? 

Could the problem be that my QT network is unsynchronized?
The last time I used it it was out of synch as well, but the transaction still went through.

I'm 223 weeks behind so it looks like a QT synch would take forever.  Is there another way?

I知 also reading that a low transaction fee can cause this?     

What exactly is a miner, what would one cost, and is this a better way to go for me?   

Any help that I can get with this would be very much appreciated.

Sorry to be off topic.  I'm using QT which I am just learning is upgradable to core.  I will post a new question myself re. my issues and specs, but I now know I need to back up my wallet and upgrade to core and take it from there.

Okay, well I'm 223 weeks behind so it looks like this will take forever. 
Is there any way to speed this up?
The last time I used it it was out of synch as well, but the transaction still went through.

Same problem I think.  
I made a payment using bitcoin-qt that seems stuck.  The receiver sent me a link that supposedly confirms that the payment was not made (https://blockstream.info/address/37ua6XDW8wyAMnM8rBgsKRTEECQayhmGC2).
I am very new to bitcoin and have not transferred anything since 2017, but that was to the same recipient and it worked.
Is this because of my transaction fee?  My transaction fee is set to 0.00010000 - is this too low?  And if so, what should it be?  
Also, is there a way I could top off this fee?  
I would like to get the transaction completed or refunded, so if anybody could help me with this I would very much appreciate it.
