Only shows the below - how can I run the pruning tool on mac without the utility being in the package? - I really need to get the blockchain database down in size. All posts say it should be in the MacOS folder. Thanks

  • Which specific tool are you referring to? Could you please state the full name. – dEBRUYNE Aug 26 '20 at 18:54
  • monero-blockchain-prune tool. It was described as this on an old post I saw. monero.stackexchange.com/questions/11454/… [4] Run the monero-blockchain-prune tool (on MacOS, you will have to right click -> Show package contents -> Contents -> MacOS on monero-wallet-gui.app in order to see the tool). Note that this may take quite some time to complete. Thus, I'd advise to run it overnight. – Mark Aug 26 '20 at 20:59

Ended up deleting the whole blockchain (94GB) and resynching with the --prune-blockchain start up flag for Daemon set in the miners wallet gui. This took over 5 days but I now have a 29GB blockchain a saving of 65GB!
