Just built a new system three weeks ago, but managed to copy over all of my files from the old machine so it sits at 82Gb on a separate Raptor drive.

17.5 GB, compressed to 8.88 GB (Chinese people would love that :(). I don't see any performance difference, so compressed it will remain... and me thinking I had used too much hard drive space....Best regards from Colombia,Luis Miguel

31GB, of which FSglobal is 11.7G and aircraft folder is another 11.7G.

I'm curious why Chinese people would love that?
because in Chinese 8 sounds like "prosper", hence their favorite number.

The number 8 is associated with prosperity and confidence in Chinese culture, according to the Wikipedia page for the 2008 summer Olympics in China. This was the key reason for the opening ceremonies being on August (the 8th month) 8, '08, at close to 8:08:08pm (again, according to the same Wikipedia page).My FS9 is 24.3GB.

I've been on a real aircraft and scenery download "feeding frenzy" over the past 3 months or so, flying in Russia, the Ukraine, Greece, Turkey, all over Eastern Europe and Asia so mine's at 87 gig and going strong right now. My archived downloads that I keep on a separate drive is 4 x that size.
