I've spent days trying tons of things but hope someone can give a bit of direction.
So I purchased bitcoins, only a few in 2010, early. Then end of the year I imported them in to Multibit Classic 0.5.15. Thought great way to save it and deleted the old files I created with original purchase. Coins showed in the wallet. Then in 2013 I checked again and they where there, thought great. So I switched to SSD on my laptop and kept original hard drive as is.
I've now managed to get it back in the laptop, get the wallet files but low and behold balance 0 and I cannot see the imported key for the coins.
I've updated to Multibit Classic 0.5.19, synced around 7 times and still nothing.
Should the private key for importing the coins show in the wallet? So if I go export keys it should have two keys? Or is the wallet the only key that will be exported and I can import that in to Bitcoin Core even though the imported key is not showing in the export and the keys, bitcoin address, history nor are my coin balances are showing in the wallet? I had 0 transactions. Just imported, checked how many I have and value and left it only with install and again before changing HDD did I check and it then showed the balance. Will the keys only show after update or should they already show?
Any and all help appreciated.
