With all EP's and SP's, the install folder is around 33GB. Then approx 4-5 GB in my documents for mods and CC (only the free items from the store). I only have Riverview installed, no other custom worlds.
I wake up every day planning to be productive, but a voice in my head says 'hahaha good one' and we laugh and laugh and take a nap.

Take Kathykins' number and add 8GB or so to it if you have a lot of Store content.

Full install of everything is approx 44GB.

Saves and a LOT of store content + some CC adds up to around another 10GB.

So call it 60GB and that's a good amount of "spare" space.
