I have been in crypto since spring 2017, Thought it was good practice to utilize offline storage to minimize the chance of theft. Long story short, I got various versions of IOTA light wallet, with the classic situation of 0 funds showing up in the wallet, Don't fear cause you just need to attach right? Fair enough, this worked 2-3 times that my balanced showed 0 over the span of 3-6 months, This time, however, happened around the same time as the "hack" with random seed generators. JAN 2018 or so figured needed to download the new 2.5.7 wallet and reattach. I saw, back then my funds but they never would go from pending to confirm, no matter how many times I generated a new address. I got frustrated after literally spending hours at a time trying to recover my funds. I gave up at the time and figured once the new wallet came out I would be able to retrieve it. (Since this is classic for IOTA wallet)
Now 5 months later I am back for another shot at recovering my funds, at least to come to a conclusion what the heck happens if my funds were stolen, how do I know, I keep reattaching(generating a new address) hoping that something other than a 0 transaction occurs. I downloaded the trinity wallet and no luck.
My question is, if I keep generating new addresses will the transaction (if stolen) show up? or will it just generate infinite 0 transactions. How can I find out? so I can either grind away or give up? Any reply would be greatly appreciated and would restore trust and faith in the project. Someone give me some closure or guidance PLEASE!
