Miner Stopped



  • Hey, sorry for being a pest but new to this but willing to learn 🙂

    My plotting has just finished and I started mining, but after 5 minutes it seems to have stopped. When I check my plots folder I have 2 files, one with correct size and another with 0 size. The mining seems to be trying to mine the 0 one. This file was not present when I started plotting as folder was empty.

    4502417769687106876_1100000001_4078848_28928 is 0 bytes in size, where as the other file has 500gb in size.

    Below is what my miner has kicked out so far:

    It's mining the 500 GB file. Delete the 0 byte file and the errors will disappear.



  • @daWallet Nice one thanks, was just making sure first 🙂



  • One more question. I have now set up my mining server with 4TB of space to mine. Can I use my wallet on my PC which is currently mining or do I need to make a whole new wallet / address?

    I entered my passphrase on server wallet login but it did not load my main wallet from my PC. In other words how do I use my wallet on both machines or is best to make a whole new wallet and transfer funds vice versa after mining?

    Thanks again

    I entered my passphrase on server wallet login but it did not load my main wallet from my PC.

    You can always use the same account on every machine, they all sync their data via blockchain.
    Please ensure you did enter the correct passphrase! Sometimes while copy you have a space at the end or something.



  • @luxe Thanks mate 😃

    I have to admit the support here is amazing! I will be recommending this to all my friends and colleagues!

    Now to start making some Burst!!! 😃
