Bitcoin Wallet Data Directory/Location

Your Bitcoin data files (including the wallet data file "wallet.dat") are stored somewhere on your computer's hard drive which you can hardly notice. Knowing the data directory or the location of the Bitcoin data files, you can restore and repair your wallet data once it got lost, deleted or corrupted.

Press Windows Key + R and type %APPDATA%\Bitcoin in the dialogue box. Bitcoin's data folder will open. Usually, the locations are like in the following:

"C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\Application data\Bitcoin" (Windows XP)

"C:\Users\YourUserName\Appdata\Roaming\Bitcoin" (Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 10)
