On my Mac I am looking for the Parity blockchain file for the ropsten chain. I checked the following locations:

  • ~/.parity and
  • ~/.local but both directories don't exist.
  • ~/.ethash contains 1gb sized files but neither I am certain if these files contain the blockchain nor which one represents the ropsten chain.
  • That's the paths for Linux :)

On my Mac the blockchain data is stored in $HOME/Library/Application Support/io.parity.ethereum/chains/ethereum/db in a folder called 906a34e69aec8c0d


On my Windows 7 machine, it's in C:\Users\{username}\AppData\Local\Parity\Ethereum\chains
