Hey guys long time no see Laughing

I need to clean up all of my FS9 folders ( I am getting so much lag along with other stuff) as I showed you before my FS9 file size is 15 GB.

So can someone lead me to an article on the best way to clean up you sim files?

Thanks in advance!

You can delete the aircrafts you dont fly.
If i was you i wouldn't touch the scenery,gauges and others folder because you dont know which data referring to which crafts.

In my opinion the best way is to unistall everything.Then create a folder and put there anything you want to install again.
Create also a temp folder in order to extract there your add-ons and then copy-paste the extracted files from there to FS9 folders.Then clean and go for the next one.Everytime you install something new check FS.
You will never confuse if you do this.
I have done all this process before 1 week.It took me about 2 hrs but its worth the time.I have my FS as i like and i get rid of all the experimental stuff... Wink

One way to start is go to your aircraft folder and delete all your unwanted aircraft. May be it is not the most efficient way but you could backup your aircraft and addon scenery folders and the effects folder, and reinstall FS then replace the default foders with your backups. I don't know you may end up in the same place. Just some thoughts. In short get rid of all your unwanted addons. Good Luck. Smile Confused Get the point Embarassed

when installing planes, keep the gauges and sounds IN the plane folder (gauges go in thr panel folder) - then when you delete it ALL goes Smile

just put the gauges in the panel folder, alongside the panel.cfg and bitmaps
