Hello I need some help with one of my electrum wallets. It has become stuck on synchronizing and I feel I am going to have to recover the wallet on a different computer with a new install of electrum. I have tried changing the server to no avail. I have my seed and my password so i am grateful for that. I can open the wallet and see then last transaction i have coming in but its unknown because the wallet cant sync. How do i get my wallet transfered to a new system to restore the wallet. Any advice would be helpful. There are a lot of buttons like export and import? It's tough to jump into when there's btc at stake. I hope someone can help me here, thanks guys!

I assume you are running the latest version of Electrum? v3.0.2 from here: https://electrum.org/#download

Usually the synchronising issue is due to either a firewall (or similar) blocking ports... or it could be due to corrupt headers. Shut down Electrum, then delete the "blockchain_headers" file from the Electrum data dir: http://docs.electrum.org/en/latest/faq.html#where-is-my-wallet-file-located

NOTE: the data directory is the one containing the "wallets" folder
