Here are some general tips that might help you:
- Double check a bitcoin address before sending any funds. A one time error of a wrong copy and paste and the bitcoins are gone when sent to the wrong address. This already happened, 10 BTC gone. But the owner was lucky and got them back as the recipient address was from a well known exchange.
- Do not delete old wallets that you are not using anymore. Imagine you handed out a bitcoin address to a friend a year ago. Today this friend comes to you: ” Hey I still owe you $200, i sent them in bitcoins to your address you gave me last year” So in that case it comes in handy if you can still access your old wallet.
