Where does Vortex store its mods?


Best Answer Tannin42 , 30 December 2018 - 10:24 AM

Well, the directory where mods are stored can be customised - if you did that we can obviously not tell you what you put there.

The default though is %APPDATA%\Vortex\skyrim, the downloads (mods in their packed format like .7z) are in %APPDATA%\vortex\downloads\skyrim

%APPDATA% is something you can put into the navigation line of explorer, it will automatically be replaced with "c:\users\<your username>\appdata\roaming"

So my OS is installed to a 64 GB SSD, which means I only have like 10 or less GB free at any given time. As such, I have Nexus Mod Manager and my mods installed on other, much larger drives. But because apparently Vortex doesn't auto update if it's not installed to the C drive (WTF?), I installed it to that, and planned to have the mods installed to a different drive still.

 

But when I imported the mods from NMM, it started filling up my C drive, and now it's almost full. I uninstalled Vortex, but that didn't uninstall the mods. Now I have no idea where all this crap is taking up space.

 

Anyone know where to look?

Settings->Mods

 

You can also move your mods from there.

I uninstalled Skyrim and forgot to uninstall the mods first. It says "Please select a game to manage first". I now have 20 gb of wasted space and i have no idea where it is.
