Well while i was downloading the beta, i made sure i had 48gb free space although a friend had tipped me over the fact that it would need about 20gb or so. The thing is, as i was downloading the game i paused a bit cause i needed bandwith. When i restarted the launcher i saw that it was still asking 48gb of free space without counting the already 10 or so gb i had already downloaded. So in essence the space needed was = 48gb + w/e i had downloading till that moment every time you restart the download

& since many ppl are on solid state disks and have some space restrictions, i thought i should point that out

I understand of course that it's a trivial matter, but i hope it will help u a bit save time by adding it to the long list of fine tuning adjustments you ll do when you complete the more important tasks
