My bitcoins are lost in cyberspace - how can I reclaim them?
« on: November 28, 2013, 01:58:34 PM »
Hi everyone,

I am totally new to bitcoins, and wanted to buy a fraction of a bitcoin some months ago. I bought them at Bitcoin central.

I wanted to check out the wallet system, so I downloaded and installed the bitcoin wallet program. I then sent my bitcoins from Bitcoin central to my wallet by using one of the addresses from my wallet.

The problem is that my wallet now requires literally days of synchronisation time for the bitcoins to arrive, and I need to give my PC to my former employer tomorrow. Also, the wallet program crashes my PC, as it apparantly overheats the CPU (I can run the wallet program without a crash if I place my PC outdoors, where it's below zero).

Is there another way I can reclaim my bitcoins?

I guess you can reclaim them if you back up your wallet.dat file (found at %appdata%/Bitcoin/).
Several websites that offers free Bitcoins:
