What is safe to delete/eject?

Post by CalculusArmadillo on Mon 01 Sep 2014, 04:07

I am sorry if this is in the wrong board, I couldn't figure out where there was a Mac-specific board if there is one???

I was just wondering what is safe to delete, and if I can eject the disk images for expansion packs after they are installed? Should I keep the most recently installed disk image? Can I clear out my downloads folder? Are there excessive files that are useless to me once I have installed all the EPs I want?

Or, better question.. What do I NEED to KEEP in order to keep the game running? .RAR files and zips and .dmgs and whatnots...?

Please help I am just trying to keep clutter down and space cleared on my harddrive!!!

Thank You

Hello,

Yes there is a Mac specific section and just for the Sims 3!
You don't need the RAR files that you extracted and installed the Sims 3 with, these are simply installation files and once the game is installed they aren't needed.
Your Downloads in Electronic Arts folder is any Custom Content you might have found and installed. You don't need this folder to run the game but you may have Custom Content you might want to keep (Store content is also in this folder).

If any Mac specialists are here can they confirm Disc locations and anything else needed?

Thanks,
Like a Star @ heaven Layloria

Hi,

Yes, it is safe, you can eject the disk image after you installed it. 

You can also delete the RAR, extracted files and as well .dmg files after you installed an EP.  (Like Layloria said.)
