Where does MultiBit keep its data directory? What is the wallet inside called?


1 Answer 1



Type %APPDATA%\MultiBit into the address bar of File Explorer.

If that doesn't work, try

  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<your name>\Application Data\Bitcoin
  • Windows Vista and later: C:\Users\<your name>\Appdata\Roaming\Bitcoin


  1. Open Finder, then open the Go menu.
  2. Click "Go to Folder..."
  3. Type ~/Library/Application Support/MultiBit


Open your home directory. Look for the MultiBit folder.

Wallet name

The wallet is always called multibit.wallet. It's the equivalent of wallet.dat in Bitcoin-Qt.
