I'm just starting with Monero. I'm using pre-installed Monero (XMR) Wallet on Whonix.
My settings are:
- Advanced mode
- Portable mode enabled
- Local node, with location of blockchain set to a separate partition (an external USB flash drive)
After a couple of hours of synchronization status changed to "Wallet is synchronized" and "Daemon is synchronized"("Daemon is synchronized" has a number in parentheses after it, though I'm not sure if it is safe to post it here).
When I go to my flash drive - the size of "lmdb" folder (which, I understood, contains blockchain) is around 1.3 Gb, though my understanding is - current Monero blockchain should be more than 100 Gb.
Is Monero blockchain synchronized to my flash drive or is it not? (If yes, why "lmdb" folder is so small?)
Should I import blockchain manually instead?
