Does anyone know what the size of a full clean game download is at this point? I am downloading it on a new PC, and it is already well past 50GB.

My installation has 57 GB, so you shouldn't have much more to go.

I think it depends on how you installed it (not sure why)

My SWTOR folder on Steam is 45.1 GB

Same here, now, after it finally finished downloading and installing (EA/Bioware bloatware installer version via their crappy game launcher).

I have it through the launcher (non-streaming version) and now wonder why it's eaten additional 7 GB

There's a couple of different things that can cause that:
* It tends to grow over time, and I'm not sure how good it is at cleaning up "not-used-any-more" objects that were downloaded previously.
* If you change which language you are playing in, it downloads the new language's text and audio, but doesn't remove the old one. (This allows you to switch back and forth without having to redownload the full set each time...)

The thing is that it's a new installation (done maybe a month ago), because I wanted the game on a different drive, so decided to reinstall to have it "clean" after years of the old instal untouched. And I use only English.

It's not a big problem, since I'm not running out of space right now, but I wonder...
