I have been trying to start a brand new wallet, but bitcoin keeps opening an old wallet, that is passphrase protected. I simply want to start again, where is all the data I need to delete to start again? This forum will not let me post without some kind of significant text in my first posting. My question is quite simple, and does not require all this extra typing. The question has been asked, this is simply fluff I have to add to get my questions posted. Please feel free to stop reading. And moderators, why not make the forum more useable?
