I have an unconfirmed transaction from over a year ago. Part of the transaction was an accidental double-spend attempt - leaving the rest in limbo. Anyone know how I can delete this transaction and get access to the BTC again?

*edit: It included a 0.0005 transaction fee

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Hybrid server-assisted clients like Electrum get a lot of their network information from centralized servers, but they also check the server's results using blockchain header data. This is perhaps somewhat more secure than either server-assisted clients or header-only clients.

gettxoutsetinfo returns statistics about the unspent transaction output database.
gettxout returns information about a specific unspent transaction output.

uh,  make a backup copy of the old wallet, get your private key, remove it, then rescan or reindex or whatever the entire blockchain.  then when that's done, add your key back?


Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Issue resolved - but a question remains...

What I did was open a backup of my wallet with blockchain.info. It still showed my balance at zero... so I exported that blockchain wallet to Multibit, which did show a balance - so sent that balance to another system, yay!

Now, I have the same wallet keys and transaction history being displayed in all MultiBit, Blockchain, and Bitcoin-QT... can that be an issue? Do I need to move everything back to Bitcoin-QT (which is still showing that unconfirmed transaction)?
