Making an attempt to open an outdated pockets.dat (from ~2013)
I discovered my outdated
pockets.dat file taken from the bitcoin core pockets I used when mining round 2013, nothing severe 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 this point:
I downloaded the newest bitcoin core, opened it and after a number of seconds closed it correctly, changed the default
pockets.dat file (with a dimension of 1416kb) with a replica of my outdated one (solely 88kb) and opened this system once more to let it obtain blockchain, then seen that as quickly as this system opened, the
pockets.dat (my outdated one) file dimension modified to 688kb, waited for the entire blockchain to obtain and seen the stability it is nonetheless 0, the ship/obtain/transactions screens are additionally clean, as a vanilla pockets.
Perhaps my outdated pockets file is considerably an outdated format and get’s erased and handled like a brand new one?
I put again the default pockets created by this system and from inside this system opened my outdated pockets file, a small window with a progress bar appeared saying “opening pockets filename“, however it retains loading endlessly. Additionally the file dimension 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.
