For me its around 60gb. Check the size of your replay folder. Can reserve some GB space for some thousand replays.

I don´t think that wot is reserving that much disc space. Check for other folders. Alternatively try to completely reinstall the game and see if it has any impact on that.

 

Moved this topic to the Tech Corner.

If you run the HD client, it takes up way more space. SD client takes up to 14gb less.

 

That and check the WOT folder. See if you can clean the "update" folder for past versions, and see if the replay folder is getting too big for himself. That, and ofc you can try Windows own disk cleaner to see if there is anything unsued there, inc past or pending update installs.

I mean 250gb is hardly anything by todays standards anyway. Cod and rdr2 are both around 150gb installs. Other than upgrading the ssd or getting an external drive there's not much you can do besides the previous comments.

As other have stated.

Play on standard client (not HD client).

Go into you World of Tank folder and open the following folders: Updates, Replays. Screenshots and Mods.

In the update folder, just delete everything (will clean up a lot of space).

In the replay folder, delate the replays you no longer need (I clear everything older than a month).

In the screenshots folder, put your pictures on an online storage bin (you can get so much free space these days).

In the mods folder, delete all folders (named something like 1.9.0.1) but the last on. The game makes a new folder every times it updates.

(You might have to install your mods again, but the job was to clear up diskspace, so...)

On my PC I only have a 120gb SSD for Win 10 & WoT, still have some 30gb free, and I play on HD.

SD client here.

WOT 32GB

WGC 270MB

 

All the hidden crap on top of that is... IDK... something.
