About Disk Space

Have problems with Assetto Corsa folder’s size? You can easily make it two times smaller!

If you wonder why this folder isn't in Steam folder, that's all because of symlinks. I like to keep all my games in only one place.

Just enable NTFS compression for content folder! It takes some time to compress all files, but after all it can even decrease loading time! Well, CPU will have to do some extra work, but HDD will have to read less bytes. Much less.

The problem is, Assetto Corsa doesn’t use compression for textures. Not even a simple one. Not even in KN5. And DDS, especially with high quality, takes a lot of space, really, a lot. Nice texture 2048×2048 could easily take 20 megabytes, and well made car requires a lot of them!

  1. I tend to play on a low end laptop (Core i3), but disk space is an issue as I have many mods for Euro Truck Sim 2, so I will give it a try and report my findings. It’s definitely a great tip! Thanks!
