Hi guys, I'm having trouble with a BTC transaction, it looks like I made a mistake but I don't know what went wrong, I made a transfer on MultiBit 0.5.15 to my blockchain and the transaction can not be found.... I just made a post on reddit, I will copy/paste:

"I am using Bitcoin since 2013, never had a problem, one of my relative bought 1 BTC in 2013, the Bitcoin was stored in MultiBit 0.5.15.
My relative wanted me to sell the Bitcoin, so I just made a transfer. I had to send it to my blockchain address. Here is the proof of my reception adress: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/161809BTC01.png

I sent the 1 BTC to the reception address, the transaction was confirmed here is the proof: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/202915BTC02.png
I thought it was a bit strange because If I remember well, I had a password to the wallet, but they didn't ask me the password and I got the confirmation. Then I started waiting, and waiting, and after 1-hour with no confirmation, I started panicking a little bit.

Normally I would patiently wait, but now I am extremely worried. I tried to check the transaction on the blockchain but the transaction could not be found.

Here is the picture of the transaction: http://img11.hostingpics.net/pics/157955BTC03.png

Now here is the link for the transaction

The transaction could not be found.... I am extremely worried right now, what the hell happened guys? Am I incredibly noob and freaking out for nothiing?!?!

I would like to know what I can do, knowing Bitcoin, I think I just lost his $1200CAD which put me in a lot of trouble, but I did absolutely nothing wrong in my opinion. But clearly, it looks like I made a major mistake."

3D Printing and Bitcoin, that's pretty cool.

A user on reddit just pointed out that it looks like the fund never left my wallet: https://blockchain.info/address/17g6qmjeshqZotqcVujHSwYV56j5iGJcir

How can I cancel an unconfirmed transaction on MultiBit, what can I do to retrieve the fund and to send them successfully?

I'm confused, unconfirmed transactions should still show up.
Give it time, it will either show up to whoever you sent it to or come back to your wallet after being unconfirmed for too long.

Everything is fine as long as the address you sent it too isn't temporary. Bitcoins don't destroy themselves if they are out there for long.

There is a high possibility that your client created a transaction that is now considered invalid by the network.

You need to upgrade to the latest version, 0.5.19 and go to Tools>Reset blockchain and transactions. You can then initiate the transaction again.
