Didn't realize bitcoin was running in the bottom right corner and I moved my wallet.dat.

I tried reinstalling bitocin and putting the wallet back but still getting errors. Exception 11dbException  db:get: not enough space.

even though bitcoin is closed now this message still keeps popping up.  

I only have like 3 bitcoins on there but would still like to not lose them.  

I will be more careful next time.


EDIT: I uninstalled bitcoin, rebooted, then reinstalled it. Now I cant even get it to start up.  I get all kinds of errors.  

I'm running windows 7.

Fixed it.  When uninstalling bitcoin it wasn't deleting the original files.  So I did it manually and reinstalled.  Seems to be working now.  


I got to a point in the blockchain and it says.

It says Error loading blkindex.dat help. Bitcoin will not start.

First, try deleting everything in the Bitcoin appdata directory other than wallet.dat.

You didn't delete your wallet file though, right?
