Hello everyone, I don't know if it's me who's having the problem or if the latest patch is that huge.

 

 

I'm at version "2.5.6.53756" Open Beta, and when I want to update to the latest patch "2.5.6.54046", I'm being asked for 64 GB of free space on my SSD (something that I obviously don't have) is there a problem or is the update for you too is that heavy ? :shocking:

 

 

 

It seems huge 64 GB to me just for an update :dunno:

Doesn't seem that bad for me, mine was only about 1.6 GB. Did you skip any updates? Couple recent ones were huge.

 

Just fire it up and leave it on overnight--good to go in the morning.

If you have another drive with space use mklink to create a download folder on that drive which DCS will use

Keep in mind that part of what the updater downloads replace existing files. But it's true: DCS will keep expanding, to infinity and beyond! :pilotfly:Better be prepared.

A track or it didn't happen.

Thank you for your answers, I think the problem comes from a module that I deleted because it took up too much space. :doh:

 

 

 

I deleted the Nevada map in the DCS folder to be able to install the Syria map, there are two problems :helpsmilie::

 

 

 

 

-The first is that the update obviously wants to reinstall it for me (the additional 30 GB equivalent to the size of the nevada map), this is the first problem. :book:

 

 

 

How can I make sure to remove this map without being forced to reinstall it by updates ? :dunno:

 

 

 

 

 

Second problem from what you said, the update is only 1.6 GB, so even taking into account the Nevada map it should only be 31.6 GB, but here the update wants to install 64 GB, so where do the other 32 GB come from ? I do not understand. :blink:

1. To remove the map uninstall it in the DCS module manager.

 

2. The update is not 1.6GB - the initial delta files were but the rest then included updates to the Syria map among other things and so it becomes lots of GB
