OK. Now I am interested. How do you find out that information. I am still learning.

Go to c/program files/microsoft games/flight simulator 9 and right click on it and click on properties. Then wait until it stops and it'll tell you "how big".

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games
Size 2.64 GB
Size on disk 2.71 Gb
38,685 Files
467 Folders.

According to the compairisons I am missing some files and folders. I have installed the full version and updated FS9 and this includes the NO-Crack CD exe.
I fyou have been following forums I have rebuilt my machine. FS sometimes starts. It always starts in Safe MODE (NO FUN) and even in safe mode it stops running. Maybe I am missing some of the folders and files that the rest of you have. Any help would be appreciated.

2.94 gig, but i just cleaned out a bunch of stuff. I wish I had checked before.
Actually, now that I think about it, I am wondering why I keep any of it. Once you install, why not delete it?

because you may have a hard time finding it again if you ever want to fly it once more.

What's the difference between GB, G, KB, MB, and B? All that is confusing to me.

You gotta install more stuff. 😉

Mine seems to be 8.95. When you all say why keep stuff it makes me wonder
because I always thought that I must save downloaded FS files in order to keep them.

That is to say that if I delete any zip files of aircraft, different addons or scenery then
they will no longer be 'installed' and therefore, not show up in the sim?

-Would that be correct? 😕

Depends on where you keep your ZIP's etc, usually away from that folder so they wouldn't show up.

I have around 18Gb of add-ons too which don't show up in that folder.

Man, that's nuts!

I bet it's the scenery addons that do it? Otherwise, you got a freakin LOAD of aircraft!
