How BIG is yours?

Recommended Posts

How big is your P3d folder?

I was amazed to find out the mine is 368 gigabytes!  With a 500 GB Solid State drive, I'm getting a little nervous.  I have to admit I have a large airplane stable, and I should delete some of those that I don't use.

How big is yours?

She ain't complaining....quite large 🤙...oh yeah...my PCIE is 1TB - I can push it near the edge - but I am happy.  500gb is limiting at times.  My PC is loaded with tons of SSD but she loves them pcie ssd 🤘

Not that big, I try to install everything outside of the P3D folder.

i.e.

D:\AIRCRAFT

D:\SCENERY

etc. etc.

For now mine is small compared to others. Mine is 77.6 GB.

201 GB 
I'd like it to be smaller (that's what she said 😊), but I've moved as much as I can to outside of the main folder (including a symbolic link to the main Orbx folder on another drive).

1.3 TB of scenery, AI models, add-on programs, etc. on another drive (1.5 TB total sim-related disk space usage total).

Here too... wish more 3rd party developers would embrace the add-on.xml method.  This week I'm doing a complete sim reinstall using 4.5_HF2.  My P3D folder is still a minuscule 33.4GB.  All I've had to install in that folder thus far is FSUIPC and the F1 GTN Docs folder... less than 18 MB. :biggrin:

705 GB  (323 of that is ORBX), plus at least 165 GB in other folders / drives (P3D Add-On folders, etc etc).

With my P3D folder at 77.6GB it takes about 3 minutes for the sim to load. It must take forever for the sim to load for you other guys with huge P3D folders.

I'm running 3 Samsung 500's with one of those a Pro.

1- OS + P3D and assorted aircraft/airports.

2- Megascenery only

3- ORBX only

Plenty of room.

500's are pretty cheep Stan, might want to consider another. Be sure you got Trim enabled on that thing.

My P3D folder (~300Gb) pales in comparison with my XP11 one (~7Tb) due to Ortho4XP assets. Hopefully FS2020 will put an end to this waste.
