Hi there,

I want to setup my Bitcoin Core wallet but it's not working .
Basically I go from "6 years behind" to "1 years x weeks behind" , that what should happens I know . Well sometimes I want to reboot my PC so I simply close the wallet and wait for that message to dissapear as it asks me to .

When I boot my PC once again ,I run the wallet it goes back to "6years" Reindexing ... It goes fast till it reach "2 years and 34 weeks" (not sure about the weeks)  then It start Syncrhnozing with the network

Now my question is why each time this happens and it goes back to "2 years" if ... when I closed it I didn't close it on "2 years" Huh is there is anyway to fix that please ? Smiley if you need more informations just let me know

PS : I'am using Windows 8.1 Professional x64

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

How it is estimated ? Isn't it downloading a huge file of 20GB then it should be precise ?
Each time I re-open it it tells me that the database or something got corrupted.

Whats the exact message it gives? You might need to delete the bootstrap and start again.

The following message : "Error opening block database. Do you want to rebuild the block database now?"
Should I simply go and download this https://bitcoin.org/bin/blockchain/bootstrap.dat.torrent ?

Downloading the bootstrap will make it a lot faster its updated every month or so and it really does help speed it up.

No its not an estimate. Someone is confusing the workings of bitcoin core with those of a download. Its not a single 20 GB file either, but thats not important IMHO. Its the timestamp of the latest known block in comparisson to now. Each block has a (rougly estimate) timestamp when it was found. The time you see is how long ago in comparisson to your system clock this was.

Ill tell you what I allways say in these situations: use the torrent[1] or try bitcoin core 0.10.0rc3[2] as it supports a fast sync due to several improvements.

If you used the torrent connect[3] to a fast node for the rest. List of nodes:

Yeah I was more then sure that it's not estimated , and I know it's not one file either , It a bunch of files of 120mb if I remember right or something like that .
Anyway I tested like said above I'am downloading the bootsrap.dat file from torrent , now I'am waiting from the download to finish to test once again . It's taking some time due to my internet speed (speed of the wind)  Roll Eyes Thank you for help tho Smiley

I will let you know of the results once it's done.
