Newbie question after also reading this thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=165117.0

1. Using the main Qt client,  I created and backed up a wallet.dat with 10 receiving addresses to USB A & B.  One of the addresses is receiving coins from mining if it makes a difference.
2. I need to send a few coins
3. I load up USB-A from cold storage and send the coin
4. Do I now need to re-backup the wallet.dat onto USB-B also because of change addresses?

So you store the OS and browsers and your wallet on a flash drive?

The bitcoin client that you installed in the safe environment doesn't need to run in order for you to receive a transaction. That the beauty of this way of securing your coins. It's enough that the network is confirming the transaction for you :-)

I follow this in some ways... but not entirely.

The main thing I do is that I have a safety wallet, and a spend wallet.  Simple enough to implement.

what happens though if your live image gets lost or corrupted? You should have it backed up in multiple places. I back up mine online, offline, and on paper(Passwords that is).

hi,

two years ago i bought a load of bitcoins and stored them offline,
unencrypted, following the exact process outlined in the original post in this thread.

today i decided to sell them. so i retrieved my wallet.dat file from storage.

then i downloaded the bitcoin client. then i pasted my wallet.dat in the correct place and let it run for 8 hours until it
had synced. it was just about to finish syncing when i got the
error message saying "file corrupt. salvage failed."

then i tried to see if i could upload the file to a blockchain wallet.

i got an error message saying something along the lines of "invalid file
type or incorrect password, no keys uploaded."

so there must be something wrong with my wallet.dat file. but i have no
idea how it became corrupted and what I can do about it to recover my
bitcoins.

i am pretty tech savvy, as far as using windows goes. but when it comes to
playing around in linux and source code, i have no idea. (i use an ubuntu
machine for all my bitcoin work.)

any suggestions would be gratefully appreciated...
