Question about the rar files. [SOLVED]

Post by KristinRawrz on Tue 20 Mar 2012, 15:35

I download the game and have everything installed correctly and all that and it's working fine, but I'm just wondering if I can delete the rar files after I've installed the game. They take up quite a bit of space on my computer and it's getting full quickly. I wasn't sure if it would mess up the game or anything, and I didn't see anything posted about it anywhere else.

Hello,

You can, but its not recommended for 2 reasons.
You'll be unable to seed and that's frowned upon, so try to seed at least for a few weeks after downloading so you can help others get the files as well.
And if you ever have to reinstall your game for some reason, you'll have to redownload everything. Perhaps you have an external HD you can save them on.
Its better to delete the files you extracted rather than the rar files themselves.
