I have a bitcoin core full node version 0.17.1 running on my machine. I want to enable prune on the node to save space on the disk. When I apply -prune=15000 in bitcoin.config file and restart bitcoin core GUI, it shows -txindex is incompatible with prune. So I want to start my node with prune enabled. Is there any way for that?
By pruning the blockchain you:
Reduce storage requirements by enabling pruning (deleting) of old blocks. This allows the pruneblockchain RPC to be called to delete specific blocks, and enables automatic pruning of old blocks if a target size in MiB is provided. This mode is incompatible with -txindex and -rescan. Warning: Reverting this setting requires re-downloading the entire blockchain. (default: 0 = disable pruning blocks, 1 = allow manual pruning via RPC, =550 = automatically prune block files to stay under the specified target size in MiB)
So, -txindex cannot be enabled when the blockchain in pruned
