I use Bitcoin-Qt. Decided to make another wallet and transfer some bitcoins there. Wanted to give that wallet to my friend as a gift. What I did was:
- renamed wallet.dat file to 1_wallet.dat
- started Bitcoin-Qt it created new wallet.dat file
- copied address of new wallet
- renamed wallet.dat to 2_wallet.dat and 1_wallet.dat back to wallet.dat
- transferred some bitcoins to new wallet address
finally after transaction was confirmed I still didn't see bitcoins in a new wallet. What I did wrong? Is it possible to get back these bitcoins?
