Bitcoin core v0.19.0.1 automatically prunes. I keep loosing the blockchain. How can I stop this?
I went into preferences and I de-selected the pruning. I also added the line prune=0 to bitcoin.conf. And in spite of all that when I booted my computer after a power outage Bitcoin Core desktop pruned my copy of the blockchain. At first when I booted my Mac Bitcoin Core showed me a screen asking me for the filesystem location for Bitcoin. I had to mount the USB external disk and enter its encryption password. As soon as I confirmed the file location it took it upon itself to prune. This problem is not limited to power outages. When I upgrade to the next version of the software it prunes again. How can I put a stop this?
