I installed Bitcoin 0.5.1 a few days ago. I activated the "Directory". It started to update the directory. 48 hours later, some 50 Gb interchanged, and a warnig by my Internet provider that I had conusmed my download and upload monthly capacity, and "directory" still showing 92%, I aborted, and unistalled Bitcoin.

Any hint?

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

This just shows that we need to make a thin BTC client or at least make the whole thing more scalable :

-too big to download 1.2 GB over internet for some
-too big to store 1.2 GB and growing on HDD

Its actually the "address book" button.

What is it supposed to do?

As I said, it was not a 1 Gb download, it was like 50 Gb total up and down traffic.

There is a thin bitcoin client that doesn't download the blockchain. https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Electrum

Also StrongCoin httpa://www.strongcoin.com (I'm the founder) is a javascript based client which also doesn't require you to download the blockchain.
