I have been trying to download TE GB South for the past day but Orbx says I don’t have enough storage. I have 175GB of free space, and as advertised the listing says that the original file is 27GB and the total file size is something like 127GB in total, I have deleted as much as humanly possible to get to 175GB of free space but Orbx Central constantly says I don’t have enough space.


Please help me....what can I do?


If I had known that the file was larger than 127gb I wouldn’t of bought it if I knew I didn’t have enough space!


please help!

So basically I need another drive to install the temp folder on?


So, in total how many GB do I need for True Earth South Including the temp file, it doesn’t say anywhere?


i just can’t see why 175GB is not enough space for a 127gb file plus a temp folder, will have to buy another SSD.

Personally, if I was gonna do that, I’d use the 175Gb as the temp drive, and install the scenery on the new drive. But if you intend to install more TE scenery, get a bigger drive ;-) 


My Orbx scenery is on 2  500Gb ssd’s. One for TrueEarth, and the other for normal Orbx regions/Airports. I too was surprised at how much space I needed on my C: drive to install TE. I thought I was gonna run out of space. I got lucky.

So could I use my 175gb free on my main drive for my main installation and say buy a 250gb ssd and point temp folder to new Ssd? Should be enough? Thank you

I would never waste my time or money on a 250gb drive of any sort...much too small for anything nowadays, maybe set your sights on a 2-4tb drive.
