The next thing we want to check while spd is still running is where is our metadata folder. This step is vital as it’s where most problems occur. To find it if you’re not sure, in File Explorer, select My PC and then search in the top right corner for ‘consensus.db’. Ideally you’ll one one copy of it, if you find multiple copies then you need to understand which is the correct one, look at the Date Modified on the consensus.db files, the one which was modified most recently should be the correct one. Below we have found just one copy in C:\Users\ScPrime\AppData\local\ScPrime (note your user folder will be different). This is the default metadata folder location for Windows which means you do not need to use the -d flag to specify the folder location, if your metadata is stored in a non-default location like C:\Metadata then you will need to use the -d flag when starting spd.
