Bitcoin Core Data File Location
This section shows where Bitcoin Core data files are located.
While Bitcoin Core is downloading the blockchain, let's look at where it is storing the blockchain data files.
Go to C:\users\herong\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin, and you see blockchain data file locations:
C:\USERS\HERONG\APPDATA\ROAMING\BITCOIN |---blocks | |---index |---chainstate |---testnet3 |---blocks | |---index |---chainstate
So the blockchain data of the main network is stored in C:\users\herong\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin\blocks. The blockchain data of the test network is stored in C:\users\herong\AppData\Roaming\Bitcoin\testnet3\blocks.
