ok, i figured since i am not that good with computers that i'd ask some of the computer wizes out there. i was goin to install soa, but my comp froze during installation (typical of my crappy machine). and earlier when i went to try again, i found i havent enough free space to install. and since i lost 800mbs without reason, i thought it might have saved the installed material somewhere on my harddrive. but i can find it! does anyone know what happens to half installed stuff?

you can manually erase your BG2 folder with windows explorer. Then re install SOA from the run menu in your start popup.

Hmm interesting. Try running disk defragmenter. I heard this may help.

You can try searching for files based on when there were modified. The stuff that is the newest is where the half installed game is. Were you running any kind of install watcher like norten? Then it is all laid out.

Perhaps you browsed to a new location, or didn't when you wanted to and it is lurking in the default loaction, or where ever you changed it to. The bottom line is, if you said go to C:\whatever\etc and you deleted those folders, it is gone, and should no longer be taking up space. If you created those files, but didn't browse to them the game auto installs to program files\bioware\bg2

How do you know you lost 800 mgs?

i have enough now for a minimal install, but i'd rather not do that

Trust me- Minimum INstall is FINE. And 1.5 gig free goes down to 800 meg?? Go to start-programs-accesories-system tools- scan disk. also run Your anti virus Software, and consider compressing a drive or 2... as for not enough free space- You should NOT have just deleted The SOA directory- UNINSTALL FIRST. U might want to do a system restore if nothing else works... go to start-programs-accesories-system tools- system restore, and select a date earlier than when you tried to install SOA, it will bring the windows registry back to what it was on this date, this only affects prgram files BTW

Smaug,try doing a file search.type in something like baldur and choose for it to search all of your hard drive.I did a bad install on mine once and although baldurs gate info could not be found anywhere on my system by maually looking,when I did a file search I found baldur files.It was a problem with my registry.I should also mention that whenever I let norton utilities repair my registry,it erases the path to my SOA game.It,s still there but whenever I tried to play it would ask me to install the game first.NO, it wasn,t frustrating at all.
