Ok, so I installed some Skyrim mods and am not happy with them. I now want to remove them easily. I did not use Nexus Mod Manager to install them so I need some help, I do also want to re--install better mods with Nexus Mod Manager soon. My question is; is there anyway I can just delete my entire Data Folder and just add in a someone else's vanilla folder? Since the actual saves are in a different folder altogether, this should bring me back to Vanilla with all my current game progress. I am pretty new to all this modding stuff and all help is appreciated. I also just registered for Nexus now.
Deleting the \textures\ and \meshes\ folders and any .esp plugins you added should pretty much cover reverting to a pre-modded state. If you only want to delete one mod, and leave others behind, simply delete only it's resources out of the aforementioned folders. Be warned, some mods make changes that get saved into your character's save file. It may be harmless to revert to not using said mod, or it could cause issues ranging anywhere from wonky weather to failure to load the save to save corruption. Texture replacer's are generally fine to remove, though you'll have to play it by ear once some more complex mods start rolling out. No, you cannot use someone else's \Data\ folder as uploading unmodified resources on the Nexus is not allowed.
each time i just reinstall a clean skyrim and copy across the esps then redo the data files
