Well people have rfactor folders 50GB+ no problem.
You can archive PACKAGES wherever you like
, you do not have to have it in your rF2 root folder.
You leave a empty Packages folder in rF2 for any downloads from GET MOD and server details file.
You do not need access to packages whilst in rF2.
So, if you have packages archived like me and use GET MOD it will download to the default packages.
It will still work in session and you just move it to archive when you close rF2.
So if SSD space is a premium leave the Packages folder archived on a Sata with your sim patches.
Any Sata will install mods barely a few seconds slower then SSD.
Sata storage per GB is 8 times cheaper then SSD.
IE: SSD-3 6OGB = $60 SATA-3 500GB = $60.
That way you have less block write to SSD as well.
