Recently my Bitcoin-Qt client started crashing on start-up (running Mac OS X 10.7.4). I was able to stop the crashing by removing the
blocks directory and letting it re-download the blockchain.
However, I don't really have time to re-download the forever bloating 13GB blockchain! So I tried importing my wallet.dat file into blockchain.info. Upon doing this, my total balance is now 1BTC short.
When I inspect the transactions, nowhere did I send 1BTC from that wallet. And when checking in Bitcoin-Qt, the coin is there and verified. Unfortunately I can't dump the private key for this coin as I get an error in Bitcoin-Qt (I think due to my blockchain being out of date). As I was hoping to then import this key manually.
Is there anyway around this? Ideally I just want to get my balance into a wallet like Multibit, so I don't have to worry about the
13GB+ blockchain! Backup my wallet safely and know that my coin is secure and safe! In a crashing Bitcoin-Qt with a forever growing blockchain I don't feel too happy at the moment.
Currently available to me I just have my encrypted wallet, and it is currently imported to blockchain.info with the incorrect balance. Any suggestions? I feel like I tip toe around a lot with Bitcoin as I don't want to accidently delete anything I shouldn't!
