Are there any freely available recent snapshots for the main net that I could download ? I'm looking for either full or rolling.
Automated full and rolling snapshots available here: https://github.com/Phlogi/tezos-snapshots
You can already get full mode snapshots here.
Alphanet Archive and Mainnet Archive coming soon™.
There is also: https://snapshots.tulip.tools/#/
with snapshots for full and rolling, and the context and store folders as .tar.gz for archive for all networks ( the tezos node does not yet support export/import of archive snapshots, so thats why .tar.gz )
Here is an update for this question, these snapshots work perfectly when you extract them with
curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/Phlogi/tezos-snapshots/releases/latest | jq -r ".assets | select(.name) | .browser_download_url" | grep roll | xargs wget -q --show-progress
curl -s https://api.github.com/repos/Phlogi/tezos-snapshots/releases/latest | jq -r ".assets | select(.name) | .browser_download_url" | grep full | xargs wget -q --show-progress # files are splitted as max. size is 2GB on github release assets # all in one decompress cat mainnet.full.* | xz -d -v -T0 > mainnet.importme
You have also https://snapshots.baketzfor.me/ for mainnet snapshots.
https://xtz-shots.io provides full and rolling mode snapshots for mainnet as well as various testnets.
This is May 2021. Most snapshots providers listed here have stopped updating, and some (tezosshots[.]com) are actually redirecting to questionable sites (at least spam, if not downright malicious).
These are the only currently updated snapshot providers that I am aware of (happy to add more to the list and keep it updated.)
