If you’ve downloaded the Monero blockchain from a website or directly from a Monero wallet, you’ll need to know where to put it. The blockchain data for Monero is stored in two locations on your computer: the “monero” directory and the “monero-wallet-cli” directory. If you’re not sure where these directories are, you can find them by doing a search for “monero” or “monero-wallet-cli” in your operating system’s file explorer.
Once you’ve found the monero directory, open it and then go to the “monero-wallet-cli” directory. Inside this directory, you’ll find a file called “monero.raw”. This is the blockchain data file that you need to move to the “monero” directory. To do this, simply click and drag the “monero.raw” file from the “monero-wallet-cli” directory into the “monero” directory.
Once the “monero.raw” file has been moved into the “monero” directory, you can now launch the Monero wallet and begin using the blockchain.
