How do i increase an Existing Plot on Windows 10!
i'm using Burst Wallet and Miner on windows 10 but the thing is!
How do i increase the existing plot i have?
Can i please get a detailed step by step guide on how to do this?
If increasing the plot is not possible then can i please get a detailed step by step guide on how to delete the existing and Re-Plot to whatever size i want to mine with
thx in advance!
@bvgfhrht you don't need to replot, just do another plot, and for delete you can either just delete the plot file or format the drive...

Step 1: Plot a new plot.
You don't have to delete any plot, because they work fine side by side. You can plot 100 of 10 gb plots or just one single 1TB plot. Same mining power. The only drawback is that having multiple plots might reduce your read time by a small margin. (Only notable in extreme cases)
@gpedro thx for your reponse but i've read loads of feedback about adding another plot
which can cause overlapping...
- Where do i locate the plot file to delete it?
@FrilledShark thx for your reponse, like i said adding another plot
could cause overlapping which will keep wasting time as well...
- Where do i locate the plot file to delete it? thx

@bvgfhrht it's in your burst folder. PLOTS subfolder

No, that is not a problem if you know what you are doing.
What miner are you using?
@FrilledShark blago burst miner v1.160705 (dont know if i spelt that correctly)
@bvgfhrht Your plot files are in one of those paths (where X:\ is your plotted drive):
If you plot correctly you shouldn't have overlaps if you post your plot file name i could give you the exact name of your 2nd plot and you will save a lot of time...
@nameless Ok.. i'll look for it and let you guys know how i'm getting on!
@bvgfhrht Don't worry, just keep on plotting.
People have overlapped plots because they use different external drives with the same drive letter in windows or even send plot files from one drive to another and then adding plots.
@daWallet Oh snap!!! You just gave me a very clear reason not to delete (was asking what causes overlapping but no one said anything about different drives) but i already deleted it and plotting again right now!
@bvgfhrht gpedro gave you the first and right answer: You don't need to delete.
There is another reason for overlapped plots, but it can be fixed:
People interrupt the plotting process and later start to plot again.
It can be fixed by Blago's plotchecker...
@gpedro Ok got the Plot folder and its deleted...
Truth is i'll delete the existing plot and create a new plot.
Just scared that the overlapping thing will mess alot
of things up and take more time.
@daWallet Dude didnt say anything about overlapping caused by different plots...
so wasn't sure what the turn out was going to be
@bvgfhrht if your second number on the second plot file is equal or bigger than the sum of the second and third numbers in the 1st plot plus one yo will never overlap the plots... for example:
Understand now what cause overlaps? In this example there isn't any overlap...
Would like to use this time to thank every last one of you
who responded to my post.
To be sincere! BurstCoin Help/Support/Forum and Developers are the best i've ever seen/met and related with till date and i'm sure that goes for alot of people when it comes to CryptoCurrency!
@bvgfhrht Glad i could help you understand, my understanding is this things could be a little hard to understand but after you get it the y turn into something real simple...
P.S.: I love your signature xD
