Move Parity Wallet Large Blockchain files to another drive on Windows

By | 17. November 2017

Running Parity fills up C Drive and in case of smaller disks, speciall SDD-s, it is an issue. One solution is to move blockchain data storage to another drive.


You can create a directory junction using MKLINK.

First rename the folder or copy it to D:\Parity (assuming you wand the data to be in the D: drive. XXXX below refers to you user name).


Then use mklink:

mklink /J C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Parity D:\Parity

Then just copy everything into D:\Parity if you already have files in the original (C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Parity) location.
