Hi guys!  I may have asked this question before, but can't seem to find it posted.  My question is about Zip Files.  The following is what I now have in my sub-folder for "Lights". As you will see, I have a zip folder and when I Extract All, it created another folder, with the same files in inside.  Everything's a Duplicate of the files inside my zip file.

My question is, which one can I delete?  scratch  Should I keep the zip folders that have the files, or delete the folder of files that was created after I did the Extract All; or, should I keep both in my sub-folder?

The game can't read the files in the zip folder (If I remember right) so you would have to have the extracted folders

as for keeping the zip folders or not that is up to you... Personally I keep mine (in a different folder outside of my game file) so that if I ever loose my CC I don't have to try and find/download it all again

Flutterby, great advise, thanks. I was doing that, but thought I would ck to see. I was thinking to move them all to a Flash drive. I have some there, and some on my external. So I'm thinking, as long as I have the zip folder on my External or my Flash, there would be no reason to keep additional files. Yes, that makes sense.

I'm trying to clean up my files and all, and get them all organized. I've got stuff just all over the place. It's crazy bangdesk  Then I can't remember which files I really want. scaredy  Thanks for the feedback, hun! mickeywave
