I wanted to develop on Algorand and tried to set up a private network for that but I faced some issues in that and then moved to test net. I followed the “Switching Networks” section of Algorand docs and also placed the
config.json in the
testnetdata folder. Archival was set to false in my config file but still while 133015 blocks have already been synced in 573 seconds.
The “Node configuration settings” of the Algorand docs say that non-archival nodes will only sync last 300 blocks and delete the rest. So will the blocks synced on my node deleted after the sync is completed or I didn’t set up the non-archival node mode properly?
