    I don't think it works that way. It's a structured dataset, with a manifest and JSON configs referencing the different asset files. I doubt zero'ing out the files will work since FS would probably crash or error on reading incomplete model data.

    Asking folks to spend more time is a waste until you confirm your idea with MSFS actually works. You should probably ask in the flightsim community if there's dataset tools that address your space concerns.

    Good point. I will. But, I'm hoping something already exists. Also, it'll be handy for other uses as well.

    Sorry to arrive late to the party. I barely skimmed through everything here. I noticed garlin replied in here. He made a script that does something like you're asking for? (PLEASE FORGIVE ME if any of what I'm saying has been mentioned already.)

    How to zero-byte several folders and subfolders in Windows Explorer

    I tried putting the vbs in the same folder. Didn't work. You'd have to probably use the "reg" files to add the context menu to the right-click menu, just like mentioned in that post.


    Again, sorry if all this has already been mentioned; "I just came by to help."
