Delete or hide?

Question

Some of the instructions say to hide files. Others say to delete if using Wrye Bash. I'm using Wrye Bash. I'm conflicted about what to do in the first instance. Do I hide or delete?

I think with Wrye Bash you should delete the files. I don't think Wrye Bash has the capability to hide files.

Darn. have to go delete all the ones I hid (hided).

I wonder if this was the cause of my issues in the first 4 installs.

Instructions might need a revision.

I am in need of some clarification. The STEP guide has us creating a BASH Patch at the end if the MOD installation procedure. Is this an un-necessary step? Should I skip it?

Then I should delete all of the files that the directions state should be hidden?

He's using Wrye Bash, not MO.

 

EDIT: Or that's what I'd been led to believe, anyway. Seems this is incorrect.

Various unnecessary files as indicated in the Steps.  It really doesn't matter deleting them or hiding them, the end result is the same.   The idea behind MO's ability to hide files, is that you can easily hide a file as a test, and then unhide it.  This is easier than re installing the mod if you change your mind.

 

In the case of STEP, there is no reason to revise the decision to get rid of a file, so removing it is fine and can saves you a (tiny) little bit of space.
