My Tera folder is 45Gb for some reason. After I uninstalled the old beta client looks like it didn't remove the big files. I have redownloaded and now installing it again and its 45GB... I wish I knew what to delete from there.

My folder is the same size, it's because the installer takes up a good chunk of space.  Try removing the installer to free up space.

Games are big nowadays...why is this so shocking to you?

When your bandwidth is caped at 80-100gbs each month 30gbs is a huge deal.

TERA is actually just about 26 GB.  The big issue many people often run into is . . . .the Screenshots folder.  That sucker can grow like an out of control tumor if you like taking pictures everywhere.   I've reached 35GB and wondered what was up until realizing everything past 26GB was screenshots.  I regularly edit the folder by cutting out the fat and backing out the faves to a separate HDD.

Originally posted by Sephiroso all my gaming years, i've never....even conceieved of one SINGLE game taking up so much goddamn space. I can't remember how much WoW took up, but it was not just one single game. It was a game, + 3 expansions(i stopped at wotlk).


Hell not even SKYRIM takes up 10gig, so what the HELL. This game is still in freaking beta, not even after-release patches/updates/expansions, and its already taking 30gigs? Am i really the only one freaking out over this?


Note, the main reason i'm so upset about this is the fact that my ssd is only 64gigs, and obviously after installing windows i dont have that kind of freaking space to throw to ONE game. I can easily fit it on my 2tb drive but fuck, i wanted all my games to go on my ssd and before this i had no problem. Sure i had to delete a game i hadnt played in 3 weeks to install skyrim, but hey, no big deal.


After clearing everything i could without breaking shit, i still need almost 20 freaking gigs to install this crap. Thats insane.

Hmm just had to look at my own game list and at the moment Hitman3 hit's the highest spot with 23,3gb for a singleplayer game. SWtOR takes a 2nd place with 20,4gb, my other "bigger"games (currently 37 installed) are mostly between 5 and 18gb and then I have the 500mb till 5gb games.

So to be honost not sure why you freak out that much? of course understand if your have limited hd space and perhaps due to me being a gamer for such a long time I already know I need allot of hd room for my games cause I don't often unistall, unless it's really a bad game.

Just an idea but perhaps you need if possible a bigger HD?
