I just did a complete fresh install of both Skyrim and the CK and I extracted the Scripts archive in Skyrim's Data folder for mod creation. However, when I went into the newly created Scripts folder, I only see the .psc files inside of the Source folder. There is no .pex files in the Scripts folder in which the Source folder is located. A while ago, I made a copy of the scripts folder and put it on a flash drive for safe keeping as a backup, but there was a bunch of scripts from mods in it and I'm not sure exactly which scripts are vanilla and which ones are from a mod, so I can't really use it. Is there something I missed while reinstalling everything?

The PEX files are safely packed inside the various BSAs.  The DLC ones are in their respective BSA and the base game ones should be in "Skyrim - Misc.bsa" and updated ones (if any) possibly in "Skyrim - Patch.bsa".


In otherwords, anything you had loose from before should be considered as from a mod and not needed for a stock / vanilla setup.
