Do you have to keep downloaded files?

Post by temarai on Sat 31 May 2014, 13:55

I'm running out of space on my drive, and I was wondering if you have to keep the .rar files from torrent, the files that you expand from the .rar files, or the .dmg files that you create to install the games?

You can delete all the files used for installing the game if you want, but then you will need to download everything again. Or keep only the .dmg if that is all you rely need to install the game (I am not a MAC user).

I've already installed all the games, which creates a .app for each expansion pack.
The extracted file, you simply copy into the .dmg,  so I don't really see the point in keeping the extracted file or the .rar, as this is basically a copy of a copy, so triples the disk space used, but I don't know if there's one or two files that I need to definitely keep that might be in these folders, so I shouldn't delete them.
The game works fine, so I probably won't need to install anything again, and even if I do need to add the games again, surely the .app files include everything I need?

Hello,

You can delete all the .rar files or the download files, we Mac users only need .dmg files. As long as you store your .dmg files, you can install the games whenever you want.
