Hey everyone,

Periodically (been a couple of years I think..) I check the contents of the addresses I have coin in. I store them in encrypted containers. I do this because over the longer term I want the the address details to be completely detached from the need to use any one client should it sease development. But I like to validate the keys and perhaps send coin between them. What's the best client which allows the closest to:

- importing many addresses and keys
- showing a list of the value of coins in each of those addresses
- moving coin between them without sending change to other addresses (which aren't backed up)

Thanks for your help!

Pretty much any client suits your first two requirements. Armory suits your third requirement, or at least it's easier to control change with Armory. There may be other options, but I think Armory is a pretty good one in order to achieve what you want.

Great - thank you! You've saved me a lot of time on experimenting. It's always the subtleties of using the clients that catch me out when I jump back in.
