Wallet not syncing - out of sync

Hi There. I had to shut down my computer for several weeks and when I restarted, my wallet was out of sync and 7 weeks behind. I have upgraded to the latest Reddcoin Core version 3.10.3. My wallet has been 7 weeks behind now for 4 days and just continues to be “out of syn” and “synchronizing with network.” Is there anything I can do to syn my wallet? I am afraid nothing is happening here.

Thank you!

Hi there.

Which operating system are you using? Linux, macOS or Windows?

Windows… Thank you for helping me!

Please follow these instructions:

  • Make sure Reddcoin Core is not running. If it is, exit/close it.

  • Hold down the 'Windows key" and press ‘R’.
    A window with the title Run will appear on the screen.

  • In the Run window, enter this text and press OK:

  • Windows File Explorer will open. There should be a folder named Reddcoin in there. Open the Reddcoin folder.

  • Rename the peers.dat file, to old_peers.dat for example.

  • After renaming, start Reddcoin Core, and wait a little bit. Reddcoin Core should now connect.

If you still have the issue, let me know.

Thank you. So I followed instructions and restarted Reddcoin Core Wallet and now I am 8 weeks behind w/ out of sync and it says “no block source available” …

Hi, i have the same problem. I just update the old qallet with the new but alwaus keep saying 2 weeks and no block source

Which OS are you running? Linux, macOS or Windows?

Hi, i am using Windows.

  • Update your wallet to v3.10.3 if you are running an older version. Let me know if you need help with this.

  • Make sure Reddcoin Core is not running, exit/close if it is.

  • Hold down the Windows Key and press on ‘R’. A window named ‘Run’ should appear.

  • Enter the following:

  • A new window will open. Find the Reddcoin folder and open it. (This is the Reddcoin data folder.)

  • In your Reddcoin data folder, rename these 2 folders:

    • blocksold_blocks
    • chainstateold_chainstate
  • Start Reddcoin Core.

  • It should be sycing the blockchain from zero… Let it sync fully. Should be done within a day (around 12 hours or so).


Let me know how it goes.

Ok done it, now its said 6 years behind. But on mine dividend it says now 0 coins?

Yes, that’s correct.
The blockchain has all the transactions. When the blockchain is fully synced, the transactions relevant to your wallet will be loaded in, and your balance will be as expected…

Don’t worry, wait until the blockchain is fully synced. Your balance will be displayes correctly.
