I was going through my H: Drive to clear some space and came across my ZDaemon folder which turned out to be nearly 6Gb of files, over 5Gb of which was in the .wad folder. Is this excessive or is 5Gb of wads dwarved my some other peoples collections? Discuss!

"Wads" folder is about 6 GBs to me, while my entire "Doom2" folder appears to be 14 GBs (wads, ports, editors, doom-based mini-games and stuff like that).

Just curious.. If your ZDaemon folder is 6 GBs and /wads folder is only 5 GBs.. Where does this 1 GB go? Razz Storing a TON of demos?

My wads folder is over 3 GB. And the Doom 2 folder is like more than 6 GB. I don't store demos, but the test wads that I make everyday using doom builder 2 are taking space like hell. Also I have DeeP Sea, each and every Iwad in that folder, saved games, hundreds of sprites, textures, flats and sound tracks, skulltag, IDE, XWE, zdoom and blah blah blah.

I'm a doom fan. I can sacrifice my half HDD for this LOL Laughing

I have a very large Wad... Er I mean my Wads folder is 2.52GBs not counting the 70.4MBs worth of Wads in the ZDaemon directory.

That's a total of 489+20 Wads.
