Did I mention that wallet is a horrible term for wallet.dat when it should be keys.dat.. your coin isnt stored there, your keys are.
You dont have to rebackup every time money changes hands, you do when you make a new key.
no.
the wallet contains 100 unused keys. they may be used for change.
its every 100 outgoing transaction you need to backup your wallet, or 100 creates of new addresses.

some how i don't think you much about bitcoin...


are you just a jerk were ever you go?

jackjack said simular above
no but you apparently are. you are talking about things that you don't understand.
go read: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Man_page#Why_must_users_back_up_their_wallets_every_100_actions.3F

the dude only generated 4 addresses, there should be around 96 usable back in the wallet.

no need for panicking, just wait it will solve it self.

I just linked that site dude. How about read a little bit and cut down on the profanity and the abrasiveness. You got way too pissed off when i said it was unlikely that bitparking would steal 4 BTC since they charge fees on trades. Started throwing the fbomb all over.. what is wrong with you dude?  Someone run over your dog, or just a jerk 24/7 for no cause?

Can you take it elsewhere?

It's already been stated many times, if you see the transaction in block explorer AND the block chain is fully downloaded AND transaction still doesn't appear, there is a real problem somewhere, because the backup wallet already contains the keys that were created (actually, pulled off the queue) later.

The reason I had asked if the address was newly created is this; there was a bug in the client (not sure about the version) which delayed the creation of the 100 queued keys until the second key is created. So if you install the client, create a wallet, immediately back it up and then continue using it without updating the backup, you won't be able to restore newer keys from the first backup wallet. I'm sure it's fixed now though... At any rate, if you already had more than one key in your backup wallet, this won't affect you.

its the thread derailing and you limited knowledge about the subject you are pretending to be an expert on, im pissed off about.
i know they have fees, but thats not what the dude was talking about.
