You'll need to do a better job explaining what exactly you need. Just dumping screenshots won't help you.

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

I downloaded the bitcoin core wallet and it has overwritten all the old file including my old wallet address and the wallet.dat has been modified after redownloading.
On old bitcoin software there is no option to just back up wallet when you click on file on top left.
On the pic. All those have changed and been modified to this date when I downloaded the bitcoin core

---snip---
or you can do it yourself, open any web blockchain explorer and check your addresses' balance there
try these: btc.com or blockchain.com
read the last part of my last post
to save your time and energy, first check your balance's addresses on block explorer
or just tell us the two addresses you believe you have used in 2011
you'd better make sure your addresses have balance before trying to recover them Tongue

I’m sorry if I’m not explaining it correctly.
Why do you keep asking me to check the bitcoin addresss?
I posted here that when I redownloaded the old bitcoin software it overwrite the wallet.dat and changed my address as well .

Can I just transfer that wallet.dat file alone into usb drive?
And then apply it into a different computer with the most recent bitcoin qt software?

Because if the address(es) are "empty"... then there is no point attempting to recover anything and you'd be better off just setting up a new wallet from scratch. Wink

There is a very important distinction between:

"Overwrote the wallet.dat and changed my address as well"
and
"updated the wallet.dat and generated a new address as well"

This is why people are wanting to know the "file created" AND "file modified" dates. If "file created" = 2018, then your old wallet could have been wiped. Undecided However, if "file created" is 2011 and only "file modified" = 2018 then there is a good chance that your original wallet.dat is still "intact" and has simply been "updated"... as opposed to completely overwritten.

As for the address being changed, wallets can hold multiple address... so there is a chance that the software has simply shown you a new receiving address and still contains the previous addresses. You'd need to use a debug console command like "listaddressgroupings" to get a list of ALL the addresses currently contained in the wallet.

The short answer, is yes. I'd also recommend that you actually make multiple copies of the wallet.dat prior to attempting to use it... and preferably work on the copies as opposed to the original file.
