So a couple days ago I got a shiny new SSD, installed windows 7 on it, started installing everything for my fresh OS.
I still have everything on my old HDD, windows install and everything, so I can always go back and boot from that drive (for now) to get information I might need
After booting from my SSD, I loaded the bitcoin application from my HDD, but noticed that my balance was 0 and my address was different. I was a little confused, so I shut down and booted into my HDD to load bitcoin, and found that my balance was still intact when I boot from the HDD.
I'm loading bitcoin from the same location in both boots...but only one of them shows my balance. Do I just have to send coins from my old wallet to my new one? Is this the way it's supposed to work? Am I missing something?
