Battlefield 4 Occupies 56 GB of Space

Postby Spaceman Spiff » Fri Apr 03, 2015 7:18 pm

What the fuck. My 128GB Solid State Drive is full and I try not to install a bunch of crap and I couldn't figure out what the heck was filling it up. Storage is on another hard drive. I limit the storage of restore points to only the most recent. Cleared page file stuff. yada yada.

56GB of space occupied by Battlefield. Jesus Christ. All those updates and map packs. I haven't played in months. Maybe I should just uninstall it. It tells me I'll lose all the update and shit. My stats are stored online if I ever want to reinstall it, right?

Screw it, I just ordered a 240GB SSD. It will be here tomorrow. Upgrading is much more fun than uninstalling.

That's about the size of my current SSD and I'm out of room already... I'm going to upgrade to a 1TB drive. I had to uninstall a lot to get my footprint down enough for this SSD and I don't like the fact that I pitched so much overboard.

I don't store anything on my OS drive so this 240gb hard drive should last me for the foreseeable future. I have Terabytes of other storage space, there is no reason to gum up your main drive. And I never have more than one game installed on my main drive at a time.

I just bought a 5 Terabyte Seagate external hard drive at Microcenter for $129 yesterday. How do you say no to that?

Yeah, I should consider doing that.

Every couple weeks I'm having to go through tons and tons of porn and delete shit to make space for more porn. It sucks.

I have the same 5TB Seagate too, I think. I bought it to move shit over onto when my HD started taking a shit.

I have a 4TB HDD, and it works if I hotplug it in while Windows is still loading, but it stalls on bootup a majority of the time. I have to keep it unplugged, and when I do backups I plug it back in.
Then, I forget about it, Windows boots fine for a while, and then it starts stalling again... I notice once the desktop loads that the 4TB HDD isn't recognized.

I tried for firmware updates and other shit, but it hasn't helped. I think I will stick with 3TB or less.

That's fucked up. I don't understand why the amount of space on the hard drive should matter, but apparently it does.

YMMV
It's due to a lot of factors, but it's most likely something wrong with the limitations of NTFS, and the way drivers/firmware handles the extra HDD space to accommodate the extension. For some hardware, it's not a very big deal. I have an X79 board, which isn't "new" but is also supposed to be fine with larger storage space. Something is going wrong somewhere, though...
