mine's 460mb...but that's only the feb bwe. It would have been larger with jans bwe also, but I copped a trojan and had to reformat and ...... you know how it goes...pfffft!

/Off topic <a little>./
Jan's total directory size, less screenies, was 266mb in size and this feb's is 462mb plus 290mb in screenies.
I don't know why there's a 200mb increase in the over all size, unless it's the extra graphic detail.

Mine is at 735 MB. (The default size is now... 170,103 KB if you start from scratch as of today.)

I hope that the final release sends a delete and recreate on this file at least for those of us with broadband.

I will probably delete it myself anyhow and start fresh at release since some Beta stuff will disappear and never be seen again by anyone.

I think it is suppose to be MUCH smaller post release, but you have gone to MANY locations and gotten all the files for those areas.

Mine is 810,938KB and I went to nearly every area so I dont get how yours is over a gig. Having said that did you wipe after the jan beta? I say this because my Jan beta dat file was larger and I hadnt explored half the map. The game had not streamed the other areas either because I was on dialup during the Jan bwe. Maybe anet have slimmed down some of the new data to speed download times and you have a dat file full of old files.

Nope never deleted it since WPE that's exactly what it is a file full of old files :)

EDIT/
Although I have a 1mb down connection I prefer to have as much as possible on my comp already to minimize the loading times...

Good morning Peanut#! Nice to see you woke up :D
You must have a good connection in order to have that much downloaded

Mine's only 870MB now, but that's only from the feb event, I deleted the data halfway through the BWE, but before I deleted it it was over 1GB, because I had been using it since the E34E.

0.99GB but thats the data from the last 3 BWE's. I don't have the luxury of deleting it as I am a 56k user and re-downloading all that will be...scarey.

1.06 GB (1,139,449,344 bytes) but i recently deleted my old .dat file because of a memory error issue. But I visited every place and downloaded it all fresh.

I assume the differing file sizes has to do with how many areas you have visited since install. Of course people who still have the beta dat in place will probably end up with a slightly larger file size with all data up to date vs someone who has installed after release or later.
