How much disk space for Bitcore?

Hi there,

bitcore synced now to 41% and used already 66GB of my disk space.
How much is needed for the full sync of bitcore?

Isn’t bitcore using an extra database to store the blockchain informations? So that the whole blockchain isn’t needed by bitcore?

Answered my own question:

Before you begin, you’ll need to have around 8GB of memory and about 200GB of disk space available to store the Bitcoin blockchain plus additional database information.

Also, currently using SSD will peform much better.
