Trying to access an old wallet.dat - Bitcoin Stack Exchange

accessing old bitcoin wallet from 2012/13

Hi Guys
I have an old wallet.dat file with a few bitcoins in it from when I was playing around with mining pools in the early days. I installed the old 0.7 client so that i could try and access the wallet and transfer out my coins but it stalled at 54% downloading transaction history and hasn't moved in a day or so despite multiple restarts....
What are the best options for me accessing that file and getting my bitcoins into a more modern client like electrum? I want to use them.
Thanks

old/legacy Wallet with Blockchain.com - how to re-access? (x-post from /r/Bitcoin)

submitted by ASICmachine to CryptoCurrencyClassic [link] [comments]

I purchased 2 bitcoins four years ago and never thought about them again. Now I reinstalled Bitcoin Core. The transaction is shown in my Bitcoin Core Wallet but balances is at 0. I still have the old wallet.dat and imported it to the Bitcoin program folder. How can I get access to my bitcoins?

Hey guys,
As stated in the title, I wonder how I can solve the problem described in the title. As written, the transaction is shown as successful and I never spent any of the Bitcoins. It would be awesome if you could help me, getting my coins back.
This is what is written in the Transaction details:
Status: 0/unconfirmed, not in memory pool Date: 09.04.2013 12:20 From: unknown Credit: 1.98269540 BTC Net amount: +1.98269540 BTC
Thanks a lot !
PS: Sorry for my bad english, German guy here :)
Update/Frustration:
Thanks everyone for your kind help! As the syncing process is going on, the good news is: My BC are now displayed! The bad news is: I am 100% certain of my password I chose, when I first secured my wallet. But now it always says: walletpassphrase incorrect.
I will now use this guide http://www.gobitgo.com/articles/1005/How-To-Recover-Your-Bitcoin-Wallet-Password/ and try to recover my pw as I know the most parts of it. Maybe I get lucky and can recover it. Wish me luck :)

Deposited Bitcoin in an old wallet, but can't access them

Hi, I recently I bougtht some bitcoins and stored them in an old wallet(medio 2017). I have the password and seed of the old wallet but when i recover the wallet file i don't see my recent transaction.
Now i have 2 wallet files, the old one i can open but is empty. I also see the new wallet file with exactly the time and date i bought the recent coins. But i can not open this wallet.
There must be a way to access my new bitcoin as i have the seed of the old wallet which i used to store them, but how can i access them?

I have an old bitcoin core wallet from 2014. What is the most efficient way to gain access back to those coins?

I have the wallet backup and the old version of the Bitcoin-Qt v0.8.6 on an older computer. I am trying to get access to the coins and move them to a new computer. Right now when I turn on the bitcoin wallet it is not syncing due to its age. What is the most efficient way to get the coins from that wallet onto a new wallet?

I have my BTC in an old paper wallet. How do I get access to and sell by bitcoin gold?

I have some BTC from way back in 2014. I want to cash out all my crypto, including Bitcoin Cash and bitcoin gold. I know I can use blockchain info to sweep my BTC and Bitcoin Cash, but i don’t believe they support bitcoin gold. I don’t have an android phone, so coinomi is out of the picture. Any advice? I appreciate it!

Gaining access to a wallet with old version of bitcoin-qt

Hey,
I realized I have some coins on my old PC, it's running Windows 7 and it has bitcoin-qt v0.7.0beta on it. I have of course lost my passphrase of the wallet, it has been over 4 years I used that computer last time.
I've been googling all night if the bitcoin-qt has some security flaw that could be used as a way to gain access to the funds. Has there been any security breaches on bitcoin-qt software?
