I can consider a number of doable avenues to resolve your situation:

  1. FWIU, your pc has inadequate disk area to retailer the whole blockchain. You’ll be able to configure your node to make use of pruning mode, in order that it doesn’t hold the whole blockchain. This manner, you may simply let your pc end synchronize.
  2. Cease Bitcoin Core. Again up the pockets in at the least one extra place. Transfer the Bitcoin listing to your exterior disk. Configure your node to make use of the listing in your exterior disk as its information listing. Proceed synchronizing from there.
  3. Cease Bitcoin Core. Again up your pockets file in at the least two different locations. (Take a look at the backup!) Uninstall Bitcoin Core. Set up Bitcoin Core in your exterior disk. Import your pockets.

I’d usually not suggest exporting keys, as it’s possible you’ll find yourself simply exporting the grasp key, however not the derivation path or one thing comparable. If you’re utilizing the GUI, use the pockets export perform from the GUI to create a backup. Ideally, first check your backup by the use of beginning one other set up on the exterior disk or a second machine earlier than you delete something.
