I have a project that I imported from 3Ds Max using Datasmith.
Currently, the whole folder is 12,7GB. For comparison, the 3Ds max file + all textures are about 1.2GB.
Inside the main folder, I have the datasmith file + assets folder. This are 2.27GB.
On the other hand, I have the Project folder, which is 10.5GB.
Inside the project folder, I have two big folders: Content (1.67GB) and Saved (8.87GB). Finally, the two biggest folders inside the Saved folder are Autosaves (5.38GB) and Cooked (1.51GB).
Ok… that’s really confusing (at least for me) so here are a couple of questions:
- Are any of this folders safe to delete?
- In the assets folder of the Datasmith file I have a lot of very big TGA files (I think this are the auto generated textures created by Datasmith). If I shrink this files (let’s say from 4k to 1 or 2k) will the project get smaller? or are this files only read once when the Datasmith file is imported?
- What are some other ways to shrink the project, both the final package (which is 1.74GB for Win64) and the containing folder?
Thanks a lot, and excuse my broken English!
