Unable to prune blockchain

OS: Windows 10

Monero GUI (latest version

I already have the full blockchain downloaded (162GB). A wallet is already fully synced.

I'm trying to save on disk space by pruning the blockchain, so I added "–prune-blockchain" to the daemon startup flag, but it does not seem to do anything even after restarting (does not show any new logs).

When I run the "monero-blockchain-prune" executable (with or without the daemon flag), it says the blockchain is already pruned.

I also notice when I create a new wallet, when it asks for the blockchain location, the checkbox for pruning is disabled, and it says to select a new location for a "pruned" blockchain to start downloading to.

PS: I've now downloaded "blockchain.raw" but the import executable is missing from the Monero install folder :/
