First timer here
...I downloaded bitcoin core a few weeks ago until last week where it still had not synced so i started all over...I was originally waiting for BTC CORE to synchronize(I missed the part in the installation that stated I needed 220+ gb of free space)...I had to format BOOT ssd(256gb..also where I originally tried to save BTC CORE)...thats why it was taking so long and I purchased 1tb samsung evo. I'm wondering if my BTC address will be the same(since I never actually synced with the servers and since I am not using the same SSD where BTC CORE is being saved. However, it is the same SSD that windows is booting from but I had to reinstall windows.
I have now downloaded BTC CORE on my new SSD and it is synced. Unfortunately, I cant find my BTC and when I use a block explorer the funds are not there(I checked with a BE last week and the BTC was there... but pending or waiting to sync...now its not)
...did my BTC address change? will it ever sync with the older one so I can get my funds?
hope someone can help
