Hello everyone,

i have downloaded a bitcoin core wallet from a while on my mac and sent a small amount on the adress. The problem is i was in a hurry and i didn' realize that i have not enough storage place.
 So i downloaded a new bitcoin core wallet on my other pc ( windows) and imported the wallet.dat file. That worked and my other adresses are also are imported. The problem is, that it doesn't show me my bitcoins.
when i check it on blockchain.info it shows me, that the bitcoins are still there. I also tried to import the wallet.dat on blockchain.info but this didn't work either. I checked already a lot of informations on the internet, but it didin't helped me.  If somebody could help me would be awesome Smiley cheers

Do you see the address you sent coins to when you open the wallet.dat on your PC?  If so, is that version of Bitcoin Core fully synced? It may not show your coins unless you have downloaded the full blockchain (150+ gigs), assuming you sent the coins to the wallet recently.

"Help -> Debug window -> console"

Then type: listaddressgroupings

and press enter. See if you can see the address you sent coins to.


You can always dump the private keys from the wallet and then import the private keys into a lightweight wallet like Electrum (https://electrum.org/#download)

Is your client fully synchronised yet? Core needs to be synchronised until the block where the TX was included to show this balance.
If your address being shown on your windows client matches the address of your address from the mac client, everything is as it should be.

I also tried to import the wallet.dat on blockchain.info but this didn't work either.

Does this mean you tried to upload your wallet.dat?
You shouln't do this. Never share your wallet.dat / private keys with anyone!
If you actually uploaded your wallet.dat you should treat it as compromised and change to a new wallet asap.

First be very careful seeking help online, don't give the wallet.dat file or its contents to anyone, and don't screen share to get help. Also, backup the wallet.dat file securely to make sure if you accidentally change the contents, you don't lose the money.
