I have a wallet.dat file from 2011.
IIRC it has about 2 bitcoins on it.
Obviously I want to recover them... But how?
The original computer was dismantled, all I have is the hard drive and the wallet.dat file, what do?

Have I done you justice and made you money? Show your love, I'll take a penny. Tongue [Bitcoin Address] 14xnsossT3ve5vpDFe9BXsiSMbw3GVgvup

Send it to me I'll recover your 1.9 bitcoins Smiley

Edit: seriously though, load up the Bitcoin-qt client on a computer, go to %appdata% if you're on windows or .bitcoin if you're on linux and you'll see a bitcoin folder. Replace the wallet.dat file there with your previous one and you've recovered your wallet.

Wole, that worked, I love you. Give me your BTC address sir. Cheesy

Also, I see something funny that happened.
Apparently I took this wallet offline before some of the BTC in it was confirmed.
So one transaction took place in May 2011, the next transaction took place a few minutes ago from the same address lol
I assure you, the transaction took place in May 2011, but because I guess it didn't confirm back then, it just now processed? Wtf lol

I would have said the same thing, if I wasn't too slow. Sad
Anyway, there are other methods to export a wallet.dat - like Pywallet
If you aren't going to pay him, the address is down there Smiley

Did Peleus edit his post after Wole posted? Or am I missing something?
