I just found an old wallet on a recovered crashed drive from 2012 with almost 20BTC worth of unconfirmed satoshidice transactions. I looked them up in blockchain and there's no record of them having occurred, with the client's blockchain fully updated. I remember having a similar issue a long time ago and It resulted in me recovering the funds but I can't remember if the specifics are the same or how it was done. What can I do about this issue? (EDIT: I believe it was done with pywallet but I have no idea if it's even still being maintained)

I'm still in disbelief. If this is real I'm going to be so fucking happy.  Grin

hate the break it to you: the 20 BTC in your wallet is undependable. the transactions have not confirmed since 2012 and are not in any client's transaction list. unless they're in a block, you can't spend them.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

How would I determine if this is the case and what's the best way to attempt to recover them?

1. what is the address holding the 20BTC?
2. is it transaction of satoshidicke sending back a prize?
3. is the wallet damaged?

if it is a transaction sent but never confirmed i is possible to create raw transaction using same inputs. Think about it as double spend. Also the pywallet is still supported by JackJack.

They are all transactions to satoshidice. They aren't all concurrant transactions, they're spaced out and of a small enough amount that I didn't take too much notice at the time, as I was playing with some huge amounts. (Note to self, the martingale NEVER works in the long term).

I made several backups, I'm going to try and delete the transactions using pywallet and rescan. Is this an appropriate course of action? I don't think the wallet is damaged.

Yes, it is. Although sometimes the balance shown by QT client does not adjust well, even after a rescan. Happened to me, I had to import the private key to another wallet and send the coins back to another address of the first wallet for it to show the right balance.
G'luck.

@OP update please.

If the transactions where valid at the time, just contact the gambling site, it may resent them Smiley
