Hello, i downloaded Bitcoin QT and purchased some bitcoin from Bittylicious. This was around a week ago and I have attempted the various ways of getting to my BitCoin quicker, eg downloading the bootstrap (still very slow and now stuck on 2 years 47 weeks) i've deleted my entire itunes library to create space (been meaning to delete it anyway)
Also i've attempted to export my wallet but to no avail also. I dragged it into the import square on Blockchain and there was no error message but nothing happened. I am no tech wizz and would really appreciate it if somebody could offer me a solution

1. The bootstrap is slower than just running a current client, you shouldn't use that.  Whomever is advocating doing so is doing people a disservice.
2. Did Bittylicious send them to one of your addresses you created in Bitcoin Core?  Or is it still at Bittylicious?
3. If it is at Bittylicious then you can use a light wallet and create an address use it and send the bitcoins there.  Electrum for example.
4. If it was sent to an address created using Bitcoin Core, then you can export the private key and import it into another client and go from there.

Assuming you are talking about blockchain.info when you say "Blockchain" that is another option, but many don't recommend them at the moment.

You could download the blockchain via a torrent network.  While it probably isn't the smartest idea, you should be able to download the entire chain in less than 24 hours.

I sent them to an address that came from Bitcoin Core. I attempted to use the console to export the private key but nothing seemed to happen. I am not sure if the instructions I were given were wrong
Thankyou for getting back to me
