Place bootstrap.dat in the bitcoin data directory and then start Bitcoin-Qt. It will read the file to create the blockchain. The file will be renamed to bootstrap.dat.old when this is completed to prevent reprocessing when Bitcoin-Qt is restarted.
You can locate the data directory by reading this.

I copied this file when bitcoin already synchronized few thousand blocks  

You can use the bootstrap.dat torrent with no ill effects regardless of your current block. When you restart and Bitcoin sees the bootstrap.dat that you have dropped in it's data directory, any block hashes you already have will be skipped quickly, and the import will pick up at the blocks you don't have.

I'm downloading
Thank you all.
It looks like a lot of time saved using them for more than a pc.

Harvest 30% interest a month, come and join us at MMM together to change the world financial system!!!
MMM is a new type of investment project. Bitcoin can be used.
After registration and first investment, the participants receive a bonus in the amount of 20$ to 100$
VERY IMPORTANT!
There is no сentral account, where all the money flows to (and where it can be easily stolen from :-)). All the money is distributed between the participants themselves! On a lot of thousands and millions accounts.
I.e. the System completely belongs to people.

Thanks for the help later on I figured out that my bitcoin daemon was older version which does not support sync with bootstrap I upgraded now and everything works fine

I turned everyone down Sad Sorry for that

Direct download mirror: https://bitfetch.com/static/bootstrap.7z
(compressed using 7z/LZMA2 - 2.7 vs. 4.7 GiB)

If you can seed, use the torrent instead.
Just a note, your SSL certificate expired at end of January.  The site now pops up scary messages about untrusted connections if you try to download the file. Sad

So I downloaded this blockchain torrent and and ran bitcoind in a screen session on Sunday. A line of "y"s kept running down my screen, as if it's checking the file block by block? Anyway, I typed "ps aux" and it says that a procees called "YES" was using up almost 100% of one core, and screen was using up 56% of another.
I just checked in on my VPS, and the thing is still maxing out almost 2 cores. Does anyone know what could be happening here?

Forgot to mention...  the following python util, linearize.py, was checked into the bitcoin repo today:

     https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/tree/master/contrib/linearize

This tool may be used to recreate bootstrap.dat byte-for-byte identical with the bootstrap.dat in this torrent.

If you are running bitcoind locally, create bootstrap.dat locally, then start seeding the torrent immediately at 100%!

reminder

+ can u pls update OP, so every1 can use it? ty 4 da tool

If anyone can't use Torrents (thank you to my ISP..), but maybe has a Premium service (like premiumize.me, which also accept Bitcoin) you can Download the blockchain.dat here

Backup here from the Torrent directly: http://uptobox.com/96wymisfbixf

For people who want to know about ISP in France providing 1Gbit/s home connection, it depends your location, if you are an enterprise, etc.. but you can check with FREE.FR, ORANGE.FR, NUMERICABLE.FR, etc.

Some also offer VPS, you can see with OVH.com

The problem with these torrents is that the peers can be seeding out of date versions.  People have to manually notice an updated torrent and go download that instead.  If we used Bittorrent Sync  (http://www.getsync.com) then a highly trusted member of the community could have the main 'secret' and everyone else who just wants to download can have the 'read-only secret'.

In fact that trusted member can also share it with a couple of other trusted members, so that any of a small group of people could update the bootstrap.dat, whereas the usual peers could only get the updates.

Like this, the file can just be updated and all the peers will notice and update their copy, downloading only the chunks that are different/new.  No new torrent needs to be distributed or freshly seeded.

Sync is a closed proprietary system. No way I'm seeding anything there or even touch that binary.

Well... From http://sourceforge.net/projects/bitcoin/files/Bitcoin/blockchain/bootstrap.dat.torrent.gpg/download I found a good signature.

Code:

It seems like pasting from the OP confuses PGP.
