Blockchain files location on OSX

noob question - in which directory does Monero store blocks on OSX?

Also, what's the current total size of the blockchain? I installed Monero on a large-capacity (spinning) HD, but suddenly my much smaller SSD is maxing out. Was wondering if Monero could be causing this...

On my windows installation with latest release the block chain folder size is 7.74 gigs. I'm not sure where the files are default located on OSX though.

Hi Alex, I have the exact same issue and was wondering if you found a way to relocate the files to a different location / directory? Cheers

On a mac, the blockchain is stored at /Users/YourName/.bitmonero/lmdb/data.mdb. Takes up about 13G on my computer

Ah yeah, I should've checked for hidden folders... duh.

But thanks, you've solved my problem! There it is, 13.96GB right on my SSD – which explains everything.
