Help with removing specific items from a mod using FO4Edit

I recently tried to download all of vtaw's outfits, but ran out of space on my system. So, I'd like to go into each of the mods and remove the outfits that I know I'll never use to make space for the ones I wasn't able to download.

Am I fine to just go to "'mod_name' -> armor -> 'clothing_item'" and delete it, or will that break something? Also, will this get rid of all the alternate materials/textures/meshes/etc.? If not, then how do I find the ones that aren't being used anymore so that I can delete those too? They're taking up the lion's share of the space, so not getting rid of them kinda defeats the purpose of doing this.

Any help is appreciated.

In fo4edit find the outfits you dont want. Check to see if their attached to any other records and delete those. Just becareful of removing some records like leveled lists just remove the entry in the leveled list dont delete the whole thing etc. Also before you delete the armor check the file path for the meshes then I believe the mesh has the file path for material files and material files have the path for textures. Just make sure not to delete something thats in use elsewhere.

removing meshes & materials will bring you nothing as they ar KB's in size.

Textures might help a bit, but only a bit and only in large numbers. (MB's each, depends on size. 2k, 4k, 8k?)

 

Still, no space... HDD/SSD i guess? Then you need to free a LOT more space. (& keep a bunch of GB's free for your PC to operate!)

Yeah.

I was planning to delete about 60-70% of the mods, which would have freed up several gigs of space. Instead I decided to just upgrade my SSD since prices have dropped quite a bit since the last time I considered doing so.
