No worries mate . when It was synchronizing with the BTC network you probably closed it or shutted down your PC without waiting for the new window to pop up (which you should let it close by it self) so the file of 20GB that it was downloading got corrupted . I had that problem couple of days
Simply what you should do is :
  • https://bitcoin.org/bin/blockchain/bootstrap.dat.torrent   (Using torrent of course , this is a big file it may take time to download depends on your internet speed (but the internet will be maximal so no worries)
  • After downloading that file , simply put it in the Bitcoin Core Data Directory before starting the program. and then you can run and you are fine to go.


=> "Bitcoin Core initial sync can take a long time. You should make sure that you have enough bandwidth and storage for the full block chain size (over 20GB). If you know how to download a torrent file, you can speed up this process by putting bootstrap.dat (a previous copy of the block chain) in the Bitcoin Core data directory before starting the software.

Another option is to use the 0.10.0rc3, it will download much faster.

It's faster then 0.9.3 but It's not that fast , so you may wanna stick Electrum pretty simple to use & clean

It uses what is called "headers first" so should be substantially faster since it can download blocks from multiple sources.  I brought up a new server using 0.10.0rc1 a few weeks ago and it seemed (subjectively) much faster.  I didn't do benchmarking alas.  ;-)

Thin clients will be much faster for sure, no matter what.
