Zcash4win stuck while syncing blockchain


#1

I have been running zcash4win and for some reason blockchain sync is stuck. It does say zcashd is running and shows 7 or 8 connected peers but does not progress beyond 4/25/2017 (~50.18%). Any pointers?

You just need to wait it out. There was a massive influx of transactions during that period due to high profitability. I would give it more time. If it doesn’t change over a day or so, I would check out the official thread for zcash4win for numerous resolutions to this problem :slight_smile:

Zcash4win BETA is out!

#4

After waiting for over a week i just triggered a -reindex. Will keep you all posted. Thanks for the help.

@nekkidtruth - where is the official thread. is it on this forum?


#5

I linked to it in my original reply :wink:

Thanks. That’s a really long thread. Unfortunately for me now I am stuck again and zcashd keeps dying. I have tried to recreate the index three times :(.

Did you check the debug.log?

Personally, I would backup my wallet.dat, uninstall/remove everything else in the folder and start again.


#8

Looks like I forgot to backup my wallet.dat so does that mean all my existing zcash is lost :frowning:
