So the "data" folder in "Data" is taking up 60.6 GB of storage space on my disk, and that's almost the entire disk... how do i tone this down, there are many data.002; data.003... files that each take up a single GB.

Is there a fix for this or is it supposed to be like this?

My data folder is: 46,9 GB (50.382.092.410 bytes)

So you might have some double files in it, at least it's not normal

Do you use the download while play launcher? if yes i remember when i played on a different server with the same option sometimes that could bug out and download multiple files over and over again stacking them together making the game folder bigger than its supposed to be.
i do know that you had to delete the data folder every once in a while because the game would always download it again while you played if that works on Freakz i do not know and i wouldnt recommend testing it unless someone says otherwise.

i use the full client and my whole game folder is roughly 50GB so it does sound like something gone fishy and its downloaded some files twice.

Well I tried to see if there was anything that was double but it didn't seem that way, i'll just try re-downloading it since i upgraded it from the MoP launcher so maybe i accidentally got smn wrong when i was doing that, hopefully it's resolved. But thank you for the replies -
