Hi experts,

I have a withdrawal issue.

I just withdrew 9 BTC to an address from an old computer that I do not
have anymore (I uninstalled the BTC client beforehand)

How can I get the 9 BTC back?

thanks

You probably can't.

Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.

If you don't have the wallet for that address anymore, that wallet is stuck with the 9BTC, unfortunately.

If uninstalling doesn't delete the wallet.dat, you should be able to just reinstall bitcoin (or move the wallet to a computer that has bitcoin installed) and get your coins back.

no. unless you gets the computer back, and the harddisk(s) is not touched/formatted/broken.

You never made a backup of the wallet on that old computer?

I did do backups in some point, but after transferring all coins to the new computer I gave the old computer away...

anyway, its gone now and I see the 9 BTC as a way to support the bitcoin community. we have now 21 million coins - 9 BTC :-) - many more people losing some of their coins

The coins should be there when you load in the backup and rescan. Doesn't really matter how old.
