How BIG is your FlightSim folder!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Out of curiosity I happened to check the size of my FlightSim folder....and I was amazed....almost 10gig. The aircraft folder alone takes up almost 6.5gig. What a beast of a program.http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/51332.jpgSorry for the poor clarity...I had to enlarge the image to get the text somwhat visibleKroswynd (Crosswind)

LOL, I am trying to be more selective so far with FS9, my FS2002 folder was over 20 gigs, that took forever to delete but right now I am at 8 gig for FS9, man, I need to stay out of the library!

>It had to happen. FS envy.>>I've got a 40 gb hard drive, with nothing but FS9, associated>backups, and downloaded files I haven't burned yet that is>more than half full!>>sgBut are you sure? Maybe it's really less than half empty?I only have 5 add-on planes and nothing else so I'm almost running FS9 out of the box. Now FS2002 was a different story; I had 3 add-ons and a couple of BU sceaneries. Yes, I admit it, I have a little folder, but I don't feel I'm any less of a virtual pilot because of it.Jon

> with so much good stuff I hardly get to use LOL.>>-DanielI had tons of stuff with FS2002, most of which I never used. I ended up having a disk crash and I just couldn't be bothered reloading the gigs of stuff again. Now I run mean and lean. Wish I could say the same for my ever growing bulk. Jon

Mine's at 10+!But the wierd thing is, and I don't know if anyone else had noticed this, when I looked at the size of the folder and then looked at the size of fsconfigurator9 they were of equal size, this can't be right can it? I just deleted it because I needed the space. Anybody know?

Sounds like some kind of disk error. Run scandisk from time to time, it should take care of it. -Daniel

Oh my, I am already at 8.44 Gigs and I have been rather selective with what I have installed. What's worse is that there are many more things I want to add, maybe this 60 GB drive will not be enough. Why did you have to bring this up, now I have to think about buying another hard drive. Do you work for Western Digial or Seagate? LOL!!!!Philip

I think the biggest problem with space is the fact that most of the downloads are huge!!! We never saw files this big in previous versions, and if we did, they were usually payware. Freeware designers have just gotten so good and detailed at what they do, we're catching the only down side to this kind of quality. Freeware designers rock!!!!(and I can say that because I'm not one of them)

7.13gb for me ;-)Yep, with most 'good' freeware aircraft downloads now at around 10mb each, it soon adds up (especially if you have to download a full plane just to get new textures - iFDG!!). And thats before you get a decent panel :-rollThats the problem of broadband I guess....it doesn't take long anymore so just get it and forget it!!

I only have 3.02GB in my FS2004 folder. I'm not a plane collector now as I once was, in FS2002 the folder was more like 12-15GB LOL. I mainly get planes now that I am going to fly regularly :) .Well...I usually won't do this, but I am always interested in seeing other's desktops, so I will post mine too :) .http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/51419.jpg

What ever it is, it ain't big enough!Actually mine is only at 8 GIG and could I probably keep it at such, but people keep releasing great add-ons. I find self being very selective, but even so, I am amazed how many 'selective' add-ons I have added on and keep adding on.

Egads......! :-zhelpI need help all right and considering I've got the majority (or so I thought) of my add-on aircraft zipped away in a hanger (folder, I'm really surprised where I am so far?No wonder it takes 1.7 days for my "select aircraft" menu to come up? :-lolBear!http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/51466.jpg
