So I'm trying to sync with the network in Bitcoin-Qt, but I just can't seem to make use of the bootstrap.dat file that I downloaded, which is annoying because it will be awfully slow to sync without it.
There was no folder in Application Support where the file was supposed to go, so I made one:
User/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin - and put the bootstrap.dat file in there.
Yet still when I launch Bitcoin-Qt it fails to use the bootstrap, and just tries to sync normally.
Does anyone know if I'm doing something wrong here? Or if there's a way around this problem?
I'm running OSX 10.9 Mavericks.
