  • I downloaded the complete node until today, but I don't have much more space on my disk to store it. I want to save it in order to re-install the program in the future not from beginning, but from the point I have stopped synchronization. Jan 22, 2018 at 19:45

if you have tar.gz file do like that to extract files:

  • tar xzf bitcoin-0.14.2-x86_64-linux-gnu.tar.gz

install it

  • sudo install -m 0755 -o root -g root -t /usr/local/bin bitcoin-0.14.2/bin/*

finally, run it

  • bitcoind -daemon

if you mean by "you copied all the files" that you copied .bitcoin directory so do like that after the previous step:

  • mkdir ~/.bitcoin

move the files you copied to this directory and execute

  • bitcoind -daemon
