The answer is... ALOT!

Here's a breakdown of my User Data folder using a program called Disk Triage (not freeware!). Local is 83.14% of the User Data with the rest then being split between Original, cache, packages, etc.

over half a terabyte of stuff, huh? Too much for me, it starts to have problems when I had around that much and above... reduced mine to below 200 GB now.

This is far less than it was about a year ago as I've trimmed out stuff I haven't used for ages and isn't a dependency on a route somewhere. That's a problem though. You clean stuff up only to have to download, and sometimes repair, the content again that was removed before. I'll be doing some house cleaning again very soon when I get some time.

Once upon a time, I had it up to 743 GB of almost anything and everything. Obsessed with downloads, I guess. Glad that is over.

But I still use about 400gb for trainz. I want to try to reduce it some more but I am not really sure what to delete, what are some assets that have really large files?

Umm, I have a 500GB hard drive on my computer, and a good number for me is 30GB of space left. I am moving my stuff over from 2010 to 12, and that is 26 5GB transfers, because of space issues.

JR's 60' boxcars are 500MB each

For me, I tried to commit keeping only stuff local or pertains to my favorites. Downloading and keeping for "just because" reasons does not work. I guess that would be an electronic hoarding? LOL

In my last install, it took up 80 gigs (!)

Not sure about now, though, after my computer failure/crash, where i couldn't recover anything from Trainz. Thankfully i recovered everything else, though! I'm now on a new machine...
