I am on OSX using a mac pro. I downloaded and installed mist, before ethereum wallet (ew) on advice from an ether forum. Mist started downloading the blockchain. It took up too much space on my SDD so I moved my home folder to another directory and decided it made sense to have a working wallet first, so I installed EW and it started downloading the blockchain, but to a different location to mist.
To clarify, EW is downloading to: Library/Ethereum/gethchaindata
Mist has previously stored it to: Library/application support/Mist/swarmjs/swarm/(long folder name)/chunks
should they not both point to the same geth folder? If I run mist anew will it download the entire blockchain again, separately? confused. thanks
