It's nearly Christmas - have a Spring Clean!

Recommended Posts

If like me you are an organizer and backer-upper, you'll have all your sceneries and aircraft and whathaveyou neatly collated somewhere outside of the FS folder.To install FS, we simply pass them over or run the installers.However, by doing that we're also cluttering up FS with all the docs, readme's, photos, pdf's, exe's and other enclosed folders with AI and flattens and whatnot, none of which need to be there once they're in their designated places.I don't know how much junk I removed from my FS aircraft and scenery folders this morning: in real terms it's probably not much (my FS folder is 43Gb) but I'm sure my HD will breathe just a little easier.Take pity on your drive and Throw Stuff Away!

Like yourself, I've got all my stuff arranged for reintalls, which are always a good idea periodically.I think 43Gb is huge. I run a leaner 10gb. but I've got my scenery divided up by continent with multiple scenery.cfg's used. All the extra "gumf" that gets installed with sceneries, I remove straight away.As for aircraft, apart form the huge 5Gb of custom AI, I only really fly the Level D 767 and the PMDG 747. Sometimes the little ifdg A320's.It's funny though, at reinstall time, you finally realise what you need and what you don't need. That's why my FS folder is so small these days. It's probably why I never encounter any huge problems with it.
