100 GB of disk space not enough? [SOLVED]

Post by Ula97 on Mon 19 Feb 2018, 19:08

Hello, 
 
today I installed 4 EPs and 2 SPs but when I try to install the 5th EP it says I don't have enough disk space. I had more than 100 GB of disk space before I started installing TS3 so how can only this few packs take up so much space?  Hmmm, sure?
 

I had an original game with almost all EPs and SPs installed but I cleaned my disk and since I didn't own all of those packs I needed to move to the cracked version of the game.


Also I tried installing TS3 on my other computer with 300 GB of space and it also said "not enough disk space".


I unistalled all EPs and SPs but leaved the main game installed and it says I have only 10 GB of space. 


How do I fix this? (I don't remember what I did on my new computer to get that disk space back)

Hello again,

One thing you could try is first to make hidden folders visible. In any filepath look at the top of the 'explorer'. Click on View and tick the box hidden items. I am not 100% sure if it works like that in Windows 8, but it works on Windows 10.

Now open WinRAR and go under Options -> Settings -> Paths.




This is or should be the default location of the "temporary files" (the place where WinRAR stores stuff in the interim, before the stuff is 'fully' written on the disk and extracted).

So in your case, look under C:\Users\(your Windows account name)\AppData\Local\Temp. Empty all contents of the Temp-folder but not the folder itself. Then try extracting again. See if the same issue occurs. Good luck!

I deleted everything from Temp folder and my disk space is back. I have 179 GB of free disk space now. Thank you!  Very Happy

What if the problem reappears? Do I just delete everything from the Temp folder like I did now?

Yes, delete again. Although the issue should not happen again anytime soon. 

Piece of cake.

I don't have any further questions  Very Happy

I just want to report that the problem reappeared (after installing every 4 to 5 packs my disk was full) but deleting the tray folder always solved it  Good job!
