@Damesis said in HDD Space Not Given Back After Uninstall:
when you delete mutables , all data get transfered to mutables backup make sure you delete both, also you might want to check for recently modified folders in you directory because pso files are sneaky AF .about 80gb to get rid of. also deleted modifiablewindowsapps, a some other folder with gibberish i forgot, with pso stuff inside. make sure you look inside folders carefully if you instaled in C : Drive , since it gets all mixed up with important stuff
I was able to delete both Mutable and MutableBackup folders, which was something like 115 GB of stuff. I still only have 277 GB left on my harddrive compared to the 370+ I had before installing PSO2. To clarify, my remaining space was UNCHANGED from before I deleted the Mutables and after. It's like deleting 100+ GB had no effect whatsoever. I also ran the uninstall from the Add/Remove Apps and deleted the ModifiableWindowsApps folder in Program Files (though when I did this, it thought about it for a while and then told me it couldn't find what it was supposed to delete - but the folder is vanished so??).
When an MMO launches, I totally understand server crashes and log-in issues, but this kind of issue, that's so negatively affecting people's actual computers, is seriously unacceptable.
