Should I just uninstall everything then start over ? If I keep the folder does that mean future updates will not take up more hard drive space?
Link to manual:

See page 7 for basic stage area explanation (drawbacks/advantages of deleting its contents).

How much space future updates will take, depends on what will be updated. Plugin content (samples/vectors) takes a lot of space, all other things are pretty small.

Thanks. Read the manual and understand things now. Just saying. I have installed plugins and updated manually since I purchased them . I only use AAX . I can't recall a update being over 1gig. Do these new files being downloaded consist of just the selected format or are they one main folder which consist of all the formats available. Also would it be better if I just deleted all my plugins and start from scratch to rid my computer of duplicates and hard drive space

Each format is duplicating data. This is the best choice for avoiding errors when you have multiple folder and different releases for each product

I updated Aquarius 1.0.039.Seems no problem.But still I wonder Titanium1 and Amber1 shows authorization request message on DAW and even can't generate new ser.files since I started to use Aquarius. :cry: I know they are discontinued but I like the dark sound of Titanium1 and Amber1.I used on many project.

No.not appear on my manual update list.They(all acqua) are in same product defined search path.I can find Amber2 and Titanium2 but original is missing.Of course program files and vector files are installed correctly in the vst folder.
