Hi All,

About 2 years ago I setup bitcoin and I'm pretty sure I mined about 10 bitcoins. I saved the wallet.dat file back then and it's about 800k in size. Yesterday I decided to get back into mining and installed the latest bitcoin client miner and wallet apps on my pc.

When I ran the wallet app, it said my wallet was out of sync and I let it sync up but it says I have 0 bitcoins. As I said, I'm sure I had 10.

Is it possible that because I've used a new username and password for bitcoin miner that it's not getting the correct data from the wallet?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Regards,

xenonex

Did you:

Shutdown the Bitcoin client.

Copy the back-up of your wallet.dat (containing the 10 BTC) to:

C:\Users\xenonex2003\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin

Start the Bitcion client.
Wait.

?


Btw, user/password for miner is not important and/or relevant
