Where does Ethereum Geth store it’s data?

By | June 18, 2016

If you are using Geth on OSX, you’ll find these locations handy.

~/Library/Ethereum (main folder)
~/Library/Ethereum/chaindata (the blockchain. At this time of writing it is about 2Gb)
~/Library/Ethereum/keystore (contains your keys)
~/.ethash (contains the DAG when mining)

If you run testnet, you’ll get a testnet folder appear in ~/Library/Ethereum.
