Hi,all. I attempted to backup my wallet as recommended and apparently I moved instead of copying the file. A new wallet was generated and when I replaced it with the original wallet, the transactions showed up, but they are unconfirmed. I regenerated the whole blockchain with no success. I deleted the original block index file-could that be the problem?

i've done something similar to this.  i deleted BOTH block files while leaving the wallet.dat alone.  my balance was there but all my tx's showed  went to zero.  the client then automatically downloaded a new block chain and it was cool to see all my tx's come back one by one to be confirmed.  i'm thinking that the 2 block files might be linked so if you only originally deleted one that might have caused a problem. try redeleting both of them and redownloading.

I tried that-no dice. Could I have damaged the wallet.dat file? bitcoin was running when I copied the file (yes, I know I should have closed it first before making a backup).

its a good sign the tx's and balance r showing up at least.  how long r u waiting to see if they confirm?  it can take a while.  r u getting connections at the bottom and did the whole block chain download?  u can also try closing client, moving wallet.dat  file to a safe place, then deleting the entire contents of that folder including the block data files.

The transactions are showing up along with the individual amounts of the deposits, but the balance reads 0.00

UPDATE: problem fixed, transactions confirmed. un-installed, re-installed (3X!), re-named the original index directory (rather than deleting it) and used the back-up wallet.dat file and after a loooong time, the transactions were confirmed.  Cheesy

It is kind of exciting while the block chain catches up: It's like fastforwarding through time Smiley
