Make sure that you have last version of Bitcoin Wallet (tested with Bitcoin Core 13.2) and at least 200 GB free space in destination disk.
Download blockchain.torrent and when it finish please not stop the torrent seed, and let other people to download it also. Files in this torrent is unchangeable, so you can let it in torrent seed. You get the blockchain folder.
After blockchain.torrent download 100% complete – start download update.torrent. After finish — move all data from update to blockchain folder, if they are not already there.
If you already have transactions in your wallet (or have non zero balance) copy your old file wallet.dat to blockchain folder. Make the new shortcut for bitcoin-qt.exe with next parameters: bitcoin-qt.exe -datadir=’D:lockchain’ Make sure that you set correct destination for datadir and replace path ‘D:lockchain’ to your downloaded blockchain folder if needed. Start the program using shortcut. If you use your old wallet.dat and don’t see your balance run -rescan command in console to restore your actual balance.
