Old wallet showed balance – then didn’t… help?

Hey all, last week I dug out an old wallet.dat from 2013 that I remembered to have 1 BTC on it. I fired up the blockchain and synchronized the whole network, loaded up the wallet and it showed a balance of 1.1 BTC and change.

Next step for me was getting it into another wallet that didn't require me to sync the entire blockchain. I attempted to transfer 1 mBTC to a new wallet in Electrum, and as soon as I did that, the balance showed 0 at the transaction turned red. Nothing ever came through to the new wallet.

I can see a transfer history of bitcoins coming in from an exchange in 2013 but nothing else except my 1mBTC transaction.

I read a little about needing to rescan the wallet – I opened the console and tried that and it didn't seem to work.

Any ideas what's going on here?
