Tips to install Litecoin core faster

Hello there chikuns!

I downloaded Litecoin Core for the first time and now it is synchronizinh with the network.
But it seems it is taking forever.
I have got a decent cpu and ram, but I am installing it on a hdd.
Is it the hdd that is making process slower? Or am I missing something?

Thank you beforehand

HDD makes it much slower, SSD is way better for initial download. Once first download is done and you regularly sync, it doesn’t matter much.

Hey, that’s normal. Litecoin Core is a ‘full node’ wallet, which keeps a fully copy of the Litecoin Network.
TBH if you’re a new user you should be using a light wallet like Electrum-LTC for desktop or Litewallet for mobile. Lightweight wallets are much faster, and sync in a few mins.
