      Code of Conduct - Rules you should read   02/25/2017

      In General
      Be respectful! There's another person on the other end of that conversation! The forums are a place to discuss anything related to Overwolf and beyond but want this to be a place where people feel comfortable to participate and have fun! Keep it on topic, keep it constructive - Threads should be constructive and have a clear topic. Replies to that topic should be relevant. Bumping a thread without adding relevant information is not considered constructive. Bumping a thread from a long time ago is also not constructive (Overwolf updates every 2 weeks, things change). Attacks or Accusations are not acceptable - Attacking another person is unacceptable, the circumstances are irrelevant, just don't do it. Read the topic - Know what people are talking about in the thread. Stick to the given topic and don't derail it. Search - We have a great search function, use it before you post a new thread as it's possible someone has asked your question before and there's info on it. Don't see something about your question or topic after searching? Post it! (keep in mind that bumping threads from a long time ago is not recommended, post your own). Don't post about locked or deleted topics; they were deleted for a reason. No petitions, demands or "When will.." We have places for asking for games, features and we will tell you when something is coming. We don't give dates for a reason. Don't try getting around the swear filter, it's not cute or funny. This is not a place to break NDA's, talk about something illegal or break any law from any country. We will contact the necessary parties involved and you will be pursued to the extent of the law. No spam. You will be banned and your post deleted. Please write in English. This is an international forum and we'd like everyone to be able to participate.
      Bad Behavior Insults, racial slurs, profanity, vulgarity. Trolling - You know who you are, and we will find you. Nudity, porn or anything obscene. Flaming - We don't have a trained fireman on staff, so don't do it. No advertising - No one wants to buy that shirt off of you, or that WoW gold. No insulting any religion (fake, real, or imagined), sexual orientation, gender or culture. No talking about drugs or performing illegal activities. Impersonation - Don't do it, people find out and you end up looking stupid.
      What will we do if you break a rule? Warnings - You get only one. Thread/Post deletion - We delete your thread/post from the forums. Suspension - Temporary forum ban. Account termination - Permanent forum ban. Legal action or report violations to the appropriate legal authorities.

  1. Edit: latest update fixed the behaviour (only keeping the current + latest version of the app) Hey there, there is (imo) a big problem with the file-management of the overwolf Client regarding Apps / App-versions. If you take a look within %HOME%\AppData\Local\Overwolf\Extensions\ there are all installed overwolf-Apps located. Within the folders for every App (/ggfmakpbllghoepnmfelddbminamnbmfelbahfdp/ for example) there are folders for the corresponding APP-version. If a new version for an overwolf App is published, there will be a new Folder created with the files from the new version. But the old redundant version-folders are never removed thus creating a lot of unneccessary data-trash on the harddrive over time. There is also now indication for the user, that this is actually happening. If an App has 2MB in size and the user installed it 10 versions ago, there are already up to 20 MB unneeded data for a single app on his computer he won't get rid of until uninstalling overwolf (since uninstalling an App leaves all files for the app within the directory above, not even removing the latest version). And since every new version creates a copy of the App-files, those versions might only include a change within a single line of code creating like 99.9% unneccessary extra data. I didn't get a reaction for my last post on here, so let's see how it goes this time. Cheers
