Reopen Strayacoin by double clicking on “strayacoin-qt.exe” in the folder with the Strayacoin client inside.
Strayacoin will start syncing headers. This process can take up to 1 hour, depending on your internet connection, usually this will only take 10 mins. This is a good chance to crack open a cold one or brew a tea, you deserve it.
Once the headers have been synced, Strayacoin will now know what blocks to download, this process will take a long time, possibly hours, as it must download 2 years of blockchain data which is approximately 500 megabytes.
On the positive side, you now have a progress bar to watch whilst you ponder your financial decisions. Before you start yelling at the person who made you do this, note that you can do other things in the background.
Once the wallet has synced, there should be a small tick in the bottom right hand corner
