TES5Edit - Clean Filed Stored in 'overwrite'

Question

Following the guide from the very beginning and reading everything (5 hours in so far and have all the fixes in place) I ran into an interesting issue.

 

Everytime I cleaned one of the ESM files, it saved the clean file in the ModOrganizer\overwrite folder.  I was able to easily move it back to the skyrim data folder, but it took me some time for figure out why it kept moving.  Maybe I have something misconfigured, but that I would pass this along in case the STEP instructions need updating or someone else has this issue.

That's not unusual. It's something that happens to some people but not others.

 

If it happens just do what you did, which is fine, or alternatively, put all the cleaned esm's in a mod called 'Cleaned Vanilla ESM's' and place it just before SKSE. Then put the backups back in the data folder and rename as necessary.

Thank you for the confirmation.  Maybe one of our fine authors can update the STEP instructions to mention this as a possibility.

Not sure where you are reading the instructions but this has been included in the STEP guide for sometime.

I was reading the "In the second case, you are done!" - I saw that the file was cleaned up, but not in the directory I was expecting.  I expected it to leave the cleaned up ESM file in the same one it started in, not the overwrite.  Also, I only have SSD in my system, so I figured naturally I would go to option 2.  Doh!

 

But reading option one even more closely, I see that we're leaving the original in place and using the cleaned-up one as a mod through MO.  I understand now.  Guess I was getting to tired for my own good. 

 

Danke!

      Greetings, 
       
      As it was stated in the title, it seems DynDOLOD is not applying modded statue of Azura (Sexy Statues Skyrim v2 NSFW Warning) when generating LODs. When I launch the game, vanilla Azura appears instead of the modded variant. The modded statue of Azura will only appear once I get close enough to it. Also, I installed a mod which resize the statue 2x its normal to make it visible all across Skyrim (Elizabeths Tower - Azura Shrine SSE).
       
      I have checked SSEEdit to see what defines the conflict and it turns out DynDOLOD.esp set the statue as persistent only and removed "is full lod" definition which was there in Elizabeth's Tower. I have very little idea of what those terms mean but my gut tells me that it has something to do with the trouble I am facing currently. Hence, is there a method to overcome this matter? 
       
      Thank you very much in advance.

      Last time I tried to clean mods with Tes4edit for Oblivion I got CTD and had to Verify the integrity of the cache after deleting the edited DLCs. I followed the guide here: 
       
      https://wiki.step-project.com/TES5Edit/TES5Edit_Cleaning_Instructions 
       
      Which was provided from here: 
       
      https://wiki.step-project.com/User:Hishutup/OblivionGuide#TES4Edit
       
      However, the latter does not use MO at all and might just have been used as a referral. Something makes me think there is some problem with Tes4edit and MO, but I just wanted to check here before I got a headache through multiple attempts. Have people here made it work just fine, how did you do it?

      First, sorry for my English.
       
      I want to merge some ESP's without renumbering FormID's. Is there any way to (semi)automatically determine, if these given ESP's have crossing FormID's? I had looked into TES5Edit scripts directory but hadn't found anything apropiate.
       
      Or maybe there is a script, which just list all FormID's from given ESP?
