I'm sorry if this has been answered before. I searched the forums and couldn't find the answer.

The Bitcoin Core app is currently "Synchronizing with network" with several weeks of time estimated for the process. I'm actually looking to delete the app, as I've gone with a different wallet. But I would like to delete the data directory also. The Bitcoin Core wiki ( https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Data_directory ) says that the data is stored here on a mac: ~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/. But I don't have a Bitcoin folder in the Application Support folder.

Searching my mac also does not turn it up for me.

Thanks for your help!

What MacOS version are you running?

A common issue i believe is that the ~/Library folder gets hidden from both the finder and indexer.

To fix this, do the following:

Quote
shift + ⌘ (command) + G which will GO to a folder, then paste in this location:

~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin

Not sure if you've tried this yet, but you should.


OR, you've installed bitcoin core a long time ago when they weren't using ~/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin as the default location.

OR, you didn't use the default settings when you started up the wallet and you set your own data directory.

Thanks for the help guys. The go to a folder command didn't work, but I was able to find it by unhiding the Library using Go > ( + cmd). I guess I was looking at the wrong Library folder.

Now I've got 65gb and full bandwidth back.

Thanks again.

Deleting something from your PC won't restore spend bandwidth, it will only restore space on your storage drive.

Right. But stopping the 100gb+ download that's been taking place for several days will restore bandwidth.

You may have missed some of my original post.
