My 1TB internal SSD on my mac doesn't appear to be enough for a full sync with state data. I know I can fast sync but I need full state data. I'm currently on block 5.2million and its at around 900GB so I'm not gonna make it to current blockheight of 7.6million before my internal is full.
I bought an external 4TB SSD and would like to copy my current 900GB of full node data. It's taken almost a week to sync this 900GB so starting over on the external would suck.
I tried copying over the geth chaindata and keystate folders and then running geth with --datadir parameter pointing to the copied data on the external, but it just started resyncing from block 0. Maybe I did something wrong or maybe this just isn't supported?
Appreciate any info on how to do this.
