Hi, I want to know what can I delete from the expansions folder that is not necessary to make room for more expansions.

I don't think anything is really unnecessary in the expansions folders, You can uninstall expansions to make room for ones you want tho.

Also what is your size of the Sims 3 folder with all the expansion packs you have, and how much room do you have in the drive that you have The Sims 3 installed in?
For Example mine installation of Sims 3 is 25.3 GB

If you still have the extracted files to install the sims 3, you can delete tho, that will give you quite a bit of room.

I only have 3gb left, that means room for only one more expansion.

Hello,

Only 3GB in total? How about a different drive? You can install the game on an external drive as well, it's no problem.
I wouldn't recommend poking around deleting stuff, that's likely to cause errors.

Yeah, if you really want more room for Sims 3, either remove some older programs you don't use anymore, or do the external harddrive way, and move either Sims 3 or the older programs there, even music/movies/photos to the external to create room for Sims 3 on your internal harddrive.

Yes, only 3gb in total. Thank you for the help. And I already order the external drive to install everything there. Do you that will improve the game performance.

Hello,

Installing a game on an external drive definitely will not improve game performance.

But moving your pictures/movies/music and downloaded .rar and the extracted files to the external and having sims 3 installed on your internal harddrive would be the best choice in actually having it run/performance.

How big is your internal harddrive anyway?

It's 319,73 GB, and yes you're right I think putting other things in the external drive will be better.

Hmm randomly googled the 319.73 GB and the person made a comment about too much stuff in the trash.

I'm glad I have talked to people from countries who use use , as a decimal point, so I didn't think you had for some insane reason had a internal 31 TB drive.
