Brief description of the issue:
MSFS reinstalling ALL 170GB of Deluxe Game+content. Was working normally 2 days ago (post France update) AFTER removing Community mods. Came back tonight and MSFS is insisting on redownloading everything.
Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:
Detail steps to reproduce the issue encountered:
I had all Deluxe content installed prior to this session.
Just checked the Folder size of (steamapps>common>MicrosoftFlightSimulator) and its ~40GB. The game is roughly 160+GB right?
Checked directories and cant find other MSFS files of substantial size.
Since last played:
-Steam>Verified Integrity of Game Files
-Disabled Full Screen Optimizations
-Set to Run as Administrator
Redownloading/reinstalling the 170GB isn’t a big deal. But don’t want to end up with 2 independent installations. Maybe there’s something I’m not seeing?
