[Ethereum] How to find the `chaindata` folder


Someone referred me to the chaindata folder to troubleshoot a problem I am having with Ethereum-Wallet/Mist. How can I find it?

Best Answer

geth (used in the Ethereum Wallet) saves its internal states for the main network in the chaindata directory. You can find it in the:

  • ~/.ethereum on Linux
  • ~/Library/Ethereum on OS X
  • ~/AppData/Roaming/Ethereum on Windows

In these directories, there are:

  • chaindata: production blockchain
  • testnet: test blockchain
  • keystore: your keys
