For those having trouble to sync up there database can make use of the following dropbox link
This link provides a compressed backup of the IRI database which is updated every hour.
Database zip file is updated again! 24/09
1. Download the iri.zip from the dropbox link (no signup to dropbox is required, deny if requested)
2. Open the "Database Folder" under Tools in the IOTA Wallet
3. Shut down IOTA, but keep the folder open.
4. In the database folder, delete all the .iri files (if any)
5. Extract the zip file and drop the extracted files in the database folder
My intentions for providing this database is only to help IOTA and it's users. I still highly recommended to sync up the database yourself instead of using this provided zipped version.
