I desire to have my disk space back, with several characters all using the same sharedcache. I am asking you guys CCP to create way to compress the files on my drives when not using them. I hope it works. 200 GBs of information files is hard to store, let alone the migration to Google drive is a long time. You guys use sometime a small amount of the file to update, I looked at steam access to your sharedcache nothing has loaded on drive. Should transfer all my accounts to steam?
Yes multiple clients that are all Omega, with the usage of multiple computer drives I require a common shared cache to store all characters. Here is a steam account there is no sharedcache file loading anything. So why are we getting resources dump on us. I have my computer holding all the files and later uploaded to google drive.
Pretty much every accessible flavour of OS has the ability to apply OS level disk compression on specific files and directories.
It should help saving at least a third.
In regards to offloading the directory into the internet, you can still save a huge amount by moving the base files, keeping only the changes. I don’t know if there’s software to allow mixing different sources of one “directory” together easily, though. I’d write a FUSE for it.
It will have a shared cache it just won’t have anything in it yet, it downloads the files you access as you need them, you’ll still end up in the same situation eventually, the shared cache is only like 17GB so its smaller than a lot of games, destiny 2 is like 35GB at this point
