Attempting to open an previous pockets.dat (from ~2013)
I discovered my previous
pockets.dat file taken from the bitcoin core pockets I used when mining round 2013, nothing critical tho, simply fiddling round. By no means been an excessive amount of into the topic, and now I am completely out of the loop.
Will clarify what I did to date:
I downloaded the most recent bitcoin core, opened it and after just a few seconds closed it correctly, changed the default
pockets.dat file (with a measurement of 1416kb) with a replica of my previous one (solely 88kb) and opened this system once more to let it obtain blockchain, then seen that as quickly as this system opened, the
pockets.dat (my previous one) file measurement modified to 688kb, waited for the complete blockchain to obtain and seen the stability it is nonetheless 0, the ship/obtain/transactions screens are additionally clean, as a vanilla pockets.
Possibly my previous pockets file is considerably an previous format and get’s erased and handled like a brand new one?
I put again the default pockets created by this system and from inside this system opened my previous pockets file, a small window with a progress bar appeared saying “opening pockets filename“, but it surely retains loading ceaselessly. Additionally the file measurement modified once more from 88kb to 688kb.
Any clue of what’s taking place?
I wan’t to switch no matter is there to some on-line pockets like coinbase.
