    Default Can these files be deleted?

    Hi all, so I was curious if the "hash" files in the local folder are able to be deleted without breaking the game. there's over 140GB of them and its clogging up my computer. They're labeled "hash-00", "Hash-0A", "Hash-0B" and so on.
    (I apologize if this is the wrong place to be posting this)

    If you delete those files you will be left without the game, both the local folder and the original folder contain the files you download from the DLS, from other Trainz websites and what you do (routes and sessions) or modify.

    You can delete what the backups folder contains, if you have not selected or changed it during the last 7 days that you have used the game, it is where a backup copy of everything you have installed, modified and even deleted is kept. You can select at the beginning of the game that instead of 7 days of backups it will only be 0, 1, 2 or whatever you want.
    Start/ Trainz Settings/ Dev / Daily backups to keep

    If these are on your C drive, you can move the whole of the build folder they are in, to another drive.

    To let the game know where they are you need to point to the new location at "Trainz Settings" "Install" "Local data folder".

    Never delete the hash files or anything else within the game data unless told to do so.

    What you can do is reduce your backups. Click on the Launcher. Click on Trainz settings then the dev tab. You'll see the backups at 7. Change to a smaller number.

    The backups themselves are found in the "Backups" folder located where your content is located. Delete the oldest folders then empty your trash.

    These backups can be quite substantial if you've been doing a lot of route building, updating, and content editing because Trainz since TS12 makes a backup of the asset prior to editing, deleting, updating or modifying.

    You don't have this folder?

    E:\TRS22_DATA\backups ?

    My Trainz data folder is bold, substitute for your own.

    Under that folder is other folders such as this from today:

    22-08-05

    YY-DD-MM format.

    It's these folders that fill up and add up pretty quickly. I just deleted 20GB from mine yesterday.

    If you use your computer to do schoolwork and trainz, then you can tell them that it's for your computer. You can also explain that that way, you have more room on your computer for schoolwork if they let you get an external hard drive. I too live with my parents, but it's because I'm Autistic, which means I'm legally disabled, so they have guardianship over me. Also, if I want to make a big purchase, like an external hard drive, I usually run it by them before buying it.
