Bitcoins are never really "stored" on your hard drive.  The private keys that lets you spend your coins is stored in the wallet.dat file.

Ignore any totals that appear when you just launch the client and it downloads the latest blocks -- when it is caught up, then it will show the balance that you can use to spend.

The other day, I thought someone accidentally sent me 137 coins but then it disappeared, it was just a glimpse second. Enough for the naked eye to see.

If you are swapping different wallets, you simply close the client, back up the current one, then replace it with the other one.

Or some people keep multiple wallet.dats on a drive at the same time (e.g., each gets a different name) and use a symlink to point to the one they want to use.

Other clients support multiple wallets.  Multibit, I believe, is one of them.

It's a glitch.


Buy a TREZOR! Premier BTC hardware wallet. If you're reading this, you should probably buy one if you don't already have one. You'll thank me later.
