I installed ubuntu-16.04.3-desktop-amd64 within a vm maschine from vmware. After downlading and installing bitcored (I did these steps: https://bitcore.io/guides/full-node) the blockchain starts to syncronize but keeps adding disk space incredibly fast. Insight says the blockchain is 1 % synced and already takes 30gb+ (I just installed ubuntu and there is nothing more on this system). Maybe this is some error with cache/temp not beeing deleted after progressing a block or something?
If I let it run it creates 400gb+ until the virtual maschine crashes. After that, vmware is not able to start the vm again. (current bitcoin blockchain is <200 gb. I dont know why this thing needs to write 400gb+ of data to my disk space).
Opening "disks" on ubuntu says the system uses ~13gb (which should be right). Where does the other endless GB come from?
Any help is highly appeciated!
