Then something is wrong!

Blockchain is 196MB:
196M    /home/linaro/nxt/nxt_db

And please get the NRS 1.1.2 and start with a new folder.

Thank you for your advice. When i go to http://nxtra.org/nxt-wallet/ there is only the windows 1.1.0 version.

Can I just run this nxt-wallet-win-setup-1.1.exe and will the update go OK without the risk of losing my existing ID as I already have an ID and version 1.0.2 running?

All you need is the pass phrase. You won't lose the ID if you have the same pass phrase

i think you have mistaken peer transfers stats to blockchain size.
blockchain is located here; nxt\nxt_db
current size is about 200mb - 400mb i believe.

thank you for your swift advices.

@lucky; do you mean these peer transfers are OK to grow over 15GB in size, is that a good thing then?

those with over 15gb must be public nodes, its their traffic not yours. we don't need to worry about it.

Nxtwes,

There is a bug in the version of the client you are using (1.0.2).  I know because the same thing happened to me.  The blockchain would download until about 98% and never complete.  If you haven't already, use this link to download the latest update for the client.

https://bitbucket.org/JeanLucPicard/nxt/downloads/nxt-client-1.1.3.zip

To make things easier, just delete the entire directory you installed the 1.0.2 version in, especially the nxt_db files, which is the actual blockchain.  Unzip the 1.1.3 version of the client, start the server, and the blockchain will download and complete without issue.

Best success to you,
