I have been trying to download the game to start playing again. I have a clean 115G disk I've been trying to load it on and the game has completely filled it up. The launcher is stuck on "repair". every time I try and run it, it starts to go thru the process, the eventually gets to the "not enough disk space" error message. All the information I can find says the game is only 85G, and needs 20G to run properly. That's 105G. I should have more than enough space, however, like I said, the game files have completely filled all 115G. Is there a list somewhere of the files that I can compare to? Something doesn't seem right. Thanks for any help I can get in this matter.

    You need twice the game size free during the initial install.

    Just another one of those things ZOS just can't seem to get right ...

    Whole game (with all DLCs) is about 260GB, not sure about the version you have.

    EDIT: Correction - it's about 180GB. I have PTS installed, which is 80GB

    Huh.

    PC Live is 78 GB, PTS is 80 GB, and the launcher is 96 MB. Installed. All DLC and Chapters.

    I would not have less than 160 GB free to install, though.

    Nope, the game (with all DLCs) is about 80GB on my harddrive ...

    If you have a larger drive, install it there, then move it over to the preferred drive. There is a minor process to move the game
    Enjoy the game, life is what you really want to be worried about.

    I'm preparing to try the PC standard version, the digital one since it's on a 50% sale.

    So I will need 85GB for download + 85GB for installation, right? Website info requirements only mentions 85GB to install...

    And, word of warning, not just the initial install, sometimes you need twice the whole game size for patches as well..
