Disk compression and Skyrim


Quahogs

Question

I know this is more of a SKyrim/hardware ? not Step so if this is the wrong place I apologize.  

 

I have a new pc and didn't realize the operating system and the skyrim install took place on the C:/ flash solid state HD (120 gig) and NOT on the 2 TB drive.  Now I'm worried about space constraints.  I'm 1/3 of the way thru SR and am staring at 13g left.  I know I can remove downloads under Mod organizer when I'm done.  In the meantime I'm wondering if turning on the    "compress this drive to save space feature" will impact the game in any way.   Anyone have similar issue ?   Could any of Steam - Skyrim be parked in the D drive or must the whole program reside under program filesX86 ?     Thanks

Well first I would make sure you have anythign non essential files moved onto your HDD. Skyrim with all DLC's eat up about 15GB of space without texture optimization. I think Skyrim Revisited eats up about 29GB for me but I'd have to check. If you're able to trim things down I'd do so and keep Skyrim on your SSD. Move your Skyrim archives to your HDD (if you follow good practice and made a archive of your install directory after you installed the game, and the DLCs).

Keep the actual game files on the ssd, but set everything else to the hdd. Eg.... Your downloads in MO. Also mo e your users folder, doesn't really contain anything speed related. But deffo best to keep skyrim amd mod files on the ssd. It's a bugger having a 5200rpm hdd and a 33Gb nodded game... Take frigging AGES to load up

Thanks. Yes I'm on a serious diet. I wonder how much fat is in Windows 8... Push comes to shove and Office gets the heave ho.

 

Can MO be modified to automatically download and retrieve from a directory set to D:/ ? Or do I have to manage that manually ?
