Hello:

I installed bitcoin on Ubuntu and i download bootstrap.dat and import it. I start importing yesterday and the data folder still growing up and up. The current size is over 25 GB, and the block file last file is blk00170.dat . I need to know what is the number of the last block file to know how long is needed to download the full blockchain.

Thanks.

Hi:

Thanks for fast reply.

I don't mean the number of blockchain block right now.

I mean the last number of blkxxxxx.dat files which exist on data folder of bitcoin wallet.

I need to know how many time needed for fully sync because i am on blk00170.dat now with over 25 GB data size.

At over 25GB, you should be just about finished.

Did you know the exact blkxxxxx.dat file number?

I'll leave that for someone else to answer.  I run my full nodes on VPS, so it's a bit cumbersome to go take a look.

just like torrents, the last little amount is always slower, due to lack of seeds (bitcoin nodes) that are online and uptodate

use a compress tool ... i have win 48% of compression on Blockchain with 7z.
separate index folder, chainstate folder and blocks folder ... because people can not use only blocks folder.

they must have, too ... the index folder and chainstate folder.

when, you create the backup ... you can split in 10 or 30 block in 1 file.
when you add new blocks, i MUST create a fresh backup of chainstate folder and index folder.

blk and rev don't work without chainstate and index folder.

Thats not a good idea. The bootstrap.dat is as far as you should trust anyone else with the blockchain data your client uses.

if you want verify the download (not the boostrap) ... it's simple : use -reindex when you start the bitcoin core.
