@chanakyabtc Only thing I can think of is that its a permissions issue. Check that the user you're running siad as has permissions to run siad and read/write permissions to the data directory (WorkingDirectory).
Alright, then something must have gone wrong at exchange A. If the transaction is still not there after 20 days then it was never submitted to the network. Please contact the support team of the exchange about this issue.
I had an idea regarding the issue of not being able to make the folder smaller, could anyone confirm that "accepting contracts" or actively sending/receiving data could be the cause? I'm desperate for help at this point with shrinking the size of the folder to accommodate a timely transfer, hopefully without the need for third party/work-around programs/tactics, the UI contains a function to do this i just cant figure out why it is having problems "migrating all sectors".
@DakotaPrairie I really doubt they'll do anything about these problems just yet. But for now I have released just today a web based wallet. EasySia.com. It is also unofficial but the copy and paste works just fine haha. Good luck.
i have a w/d that has been pending since July 20 on polo. 3 tickets opened. I heard its bc of SIA. Its beautiful watching the value of SIA collapse while my coins are frozen bc of broken tech. thanks guys
As I understand you have either not initialized the wallet at all or you did not write down the seed. Thus you have no coins in the wallet.
The seed is the password if you did not explicitly set a custom one.
Anyway, assumed you don't have any SC in your wallet, you can just type wallet init --force to create a fresh new wallet.
Just don't forget to copy and paste the generated seed into your safe/encrypted storage.
mine are happening (same amount) at the rate of one or two an hour . This represents a fraction of a fraction of a cent...but I still don't get how this could have to do with collateral. Doesn't seem like it will ever get there.
Thanks I wrote in renter allowance cancel and it did what I wanted.
It canceled all contracts.
I'm annoyed that I initially allocated 222,000 sia. I tried uploading a few files then a week late removed them all. I haven't had any files on the system for most of the 5 months since it has been in there. Now that it has cancelled I'm left with 40667 SiaCoins.
What are all these extra transactions that I have spent all my coins? I've not used the system in any way. I see that all my Recent Transactions tab is full of outgoing payments. What are these for? If no one is hosting my files why am I consistently paying out? I've been waiting for it to cancel on its own this entire time. If I had known about this renter allowance cancel I would have cancelled this ages ago.
Any extra information will be helpful. Is my other Sia now lost forever?
nope... The renter holds the private key. The files are encrypted. It is the renters only.
However if you look at the road map for SIA a coming versino is speaking about makkin simple file sharing available. In the first place to other ISA users...
The short answer is
Every address you get from your wallet belongs to the seed you got when creating the wallet. And addresses do not expire. All addresses you get with the "Receive siacoin" are valid and can be listed by typing
in the terminal section of your wallet.
This is answered in the Sia FAQ.
The Sia Wiki has a lot of other information too...
