I've just backed up an encrypted wallet, but the client (Bitcoin-Qt) is 26 weeks behind.
During these last 26 weeks this wallet has only received BTC (roughly one transaction per day), no payments were made from it.
I have a few questions:
(1) If I install a new client on a new machine, import wallet from this backup, and then let the new client fully sync with the blockchain, will I have access to the BTC received during the last 26 weeks, or these funds (or some them) will have been lost?
(2) I have run the keypoololdest, which returns May 10th 2014; I assume this is the date of the oldest unused key in the pool. The last outbound payment from this wallet was in May 2014, about a week after the keypoololdtest date.
The date which is 26 weeks behind today is Jan 29th 2015, which is 264 days after the keypoololdtest date.
Could someone please shed some light on what's going on here?
(3) Are keypool keys only used on outbound transactions (to receive change), or each inbound payment also uses up a key?
Thanks in advance!
